The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) conducts inspections of federally licensed dog breeders. During these inspections, USDA inspectors document and photograph violations. The photographs and information on this site were provided by USDA following regular requests made from 2010-2017 under the Freedom of Information Act. Beginning in 2017, the USDA began redacting documents provided, claiming, in part, the information “would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.” Therefore, updated information regarding these facilities is no longer available. The ASPCA has fought this lack of transparency. For more information, please visit
