I was considering going into the breeding business (small with 3 pairs) But before I do that I would realy like to know how to go about getting a USDA lis. If I am going to do this, I want to do it right. I only have two suggs right now, but friend of mine is being stationed over seas and asked me if I would like his 4! They are beautiful. I just do not want to get in any trouble for breeding.

First of all, READ READ READ! Breeding gliders isn't as easy as you think. And, in actuality, you spend MORE money breeding and raising the joey than you would get just by selling the joey. But seriously, read.

I'd highly suggest you read through these pages....

To get your USDA breeder's License, you need to have at least 3 breeding females. You need to contact your local Animal Care Regional Office and they will send you a packet with the application.

Kiiru is right though, please do a LOT of research before making the decision to become a breeder. There is a LOT more involved than most people realize and there's already an overabundance of gliders being sold here in the States...

I agree with the other posters. Definitely do your research. We had to do a lot of research prior to breeding the sugar gliders and other exotics we have; associated laws (not just federal but local ordinances), costs, diet, etc.

It's more a passion for the animals than for the profit. Trust me. We spend a lot on food, supplies, care, supplements; they live like royalty and eat healthier than we do. As matter of fact, oddly enough, we eat better now (more fruits and vegetables). smile

You have to find a veterinarian that will see exotic pets and will sign off on sponsorship for the USDA form. The veterinarian will also conduct their own inspection (ours did at least wanted to do a pre-inspection before signing off on the form). They will conduct the visit a minimum of once a year or however the vet and you decide to work out an inspection schedule (more along the lines of what the vet will say). Also, find more than one vet. Always have list available of vets in the event anything should ever happen (the vet quits, stops doing USDA sponsorship, not available for emergencies, etc). Up where I'm at in Virginia, there's not a long list a veterinarians who would do this for the simple fact that either don't have the time, or, don't even know what you're asking about.

Also keep in touch with the APHIS office to ensure after you've submitted your paperwork that they have confirmed receipt of your application.
