Keeping Animals Safe During Emergencies. Planning can be the difference between surviving an emergency and catastrophic loss.

As a registered carrier, intermediate handler, or animal transporter regulated under the Animal Welfare Act, you are required to make a contingency plan. This plan describes what you will do to safeguard your animals during emergencies or disasters.

USDregisterA APHIS representatives will provide an overview of the new rule including contingency planning basics and what to consider when planning for contingencies.

All current registered facilities (intermediate handlers, and carriers) must have a written Contingency Plan in place by July 5, 2022
