Data on U.S. Research Institutions and Universities that Buy Class B Dogs and Cats

The following chart lists the number of pets purchased from Class B dealers by U.S. research institutions and universities according to the most recently available records. These are research institutions that, to the best of our knowledge, continue to purchase "random source" dogs and cats from Class B dealers or reserve the right to do so1. In some instances only the most recent purchase was recorded, while other records include multiple purchases over several months.

1 The Humane Society of the United States obtained the information in the table from a variety of sources, including freedom of information requests submitted to state agriculture departments for certificates of veterinary inspection, freedom of information requests submitted to individual research institutions for dog and cat acquisition records, and surveys of the institutions themselves.

2 The dates indicated may differ slightly from the actual purchase dates.

3 N/A=Not available; The Humane Society of the United States was unable to obtain information on the numbers of animals purchased and the dates of purchases at this institution. However, The HSUS knows that this institution purchases random source dogs or cats from Class B dealers based on the institution's responses to our surveys.

4 The Humane Society of the United States has contacted these institutions about their animal acquisition policies and asked them to adopt a policy stating that they will no longer purchase from Class B dealers, if they have not already done so. The HSUS knows that these institutions purchased from Class B dealers prior to 2010.
