USDA: USDA Rolls Out New APHIS Compliance Database and Search Tool

USDA: USDA Rolls Out New APHIS Compliance Database and Search Tool . “The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is pleased to announce the rollout of the refined public search tool that provides access to Animal Welfare Act compliance records. The public search tool is a component of the Animal Care Information System (ACIS) and will allow APHIS to make animal welfare information publicly available and ensure compliance with all applicable laws*.”

I’ve seen two different reactions asserting the tool doesn’t do what it says it does.
