Who's Who of Federal Oversight of Animal Issues
The Animal Welfare Act [often referred to as "The AWA", or "The Act"] regulates the purchase, care, treatment and transportation of animals used for exhibition, sold as pets, or used in biomedical research laboratories. At the present time, the Act does not cover animals used in commonly accepted agricultural practices, laboratory-bred rats, mice nor birds.
