    Got this last bunch of 28 kittens. These are legal to sell and preserve;


    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.

    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


    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.
