Welcome to the USDA, APHIS, VS, New England Area Office web page.

Veterinary Services activities in this area include preventing, preparing, responding and recovering from emergency animal disease and disaster situations. Working closely with our New England state agriculture departments, state veterinarians and livestock producers, we provide support for controlling or eradicating major domestic livestock diseases and provide monitoring systems for preventing the interstate spread of animal diseases. Current disease eradication programs include efforts directed at cattle brucellosis, and swine brucellosis; bovine tuberculosis; and pseudorabies in swine and use the Voluntary Scrapie Flock Certification Program to control scrapie in sheep and goats. We assist many business entities and citizens with health certification of animals and animal products for importation and exportation. The New England area office regulates the importation of animals that enter the country through land ports along the Canadian border in the ports listed below. Please contact our office if you would like more information regarding our activities or if you need our services.
