The Veterinary Services (VS) Regional offices accomplish the
VS mission by overseeing 37Area Offices. The Area Offices have
responsibility for animal health programs in the United States

for 27 states, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. The WR includes
17 Area Offices with responsibility for 22 states and the Pacific
