Got this last bunch of 28 kittens. These are legal to sell and preserve; Mark I am including a copy of Policy 20 . As long as the source of the deceased cats is from a county or municipal shelter then you are exempt from licensing . You would need a license if you euthanize dogs/cats and sell them yourself or buy them from a private source ( unlicensed breeder , vet clinic etc. ) . The municipal /county shelters do not require a license either but a private shelter/person would . If you have other questions please let me know. Policies Animal Care Resource Guide Licensing Sales of Dead Animals Issue Date: March 25, 2011 Subject: Licensing Sales of DeadAnimals Policy #20 References: AWA Sections 2131 and 2132(f) 9 CFR, Part 1 History: Replaces policy dated September 30, 1999 and previously identified as Policy #28. Justification: The definition of “dealer” in the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) states that a dealer “is any person who . . . buys or sells . . . anydog or other animal whether alive or dead for research, teaching, exhibition, or use as a pet . . . .” This policy provides clarification regarding the licensing requirements for persons who sell dead animals and/or animal parts. Policy: The following persons who sell dead animals or animal parts require a license: • Any person who acquires any live covered animal and subsequently euthanizes that animal to sell for a covered purpose. • Any person who acquires a dead dog or cat (or parts) from private, unlicensed sources, to sell for covered purposes. The following persons who sell dead animals do not require a license: • Any person who acquires a dead animal (other than a dog or cat) and then sells it. • Any person who acquires a dead dog or cat (or parts) from a USDA licensed dealer or municipal, county, or state pound/shelter and then sells it. So as the arm chair lawyers can clearly see it IS perfectly legal. These will be sold in lots of ten at $9 each plus shipping.
