IN ORDER TO OBTAIN A  HEALTH CERTIFICATE 

IF YOUR STATE REQUIRES A PERMIT.......

 YOU (the customer).......

MUST APPLY FOR THE REQUIRED PERMIT 

TO HAVE A HEALTH CERTIFICATE ISSUED IN YOUR NAME!!
Please call the entity that regulates the animals as they also enforce the laws!
Do not just look it up and try to understand the rules and regulations ask who enforces them.

You need to ASK:  I wish to have this animal
                               I AM PURCHASING IT FROM A USDA BREEDER
                               THESE ARE RANCH RAISED ANIMALS
                               (Domestically Raised) animals
          Do I need to have a permit to have possession of this animal??
           What do I need to do in order to IMPORT this animal into our state??


            If the animal that you wish IS  FOUND in your state (in the wild)
              the DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES  regulates it.

             If the animal IS NOT FOUND (in the wild)
             in your state then the STATE VET determines 
              if you can IMPORT the animal into your state

This is the letter James Grey wrote to us:
I am with the NYS Dept. of Agriculture and markets an I am referred
to on your web page regarding state laws.  I am writing to clarify the law so
their is no confusion.  It IS LEGAL to keep fox in NY if you are raising them for FUR.
Under the AG Markets laws would be considered an AG ACTIVTY.  Under our Dept.
of Environmental Conservation dangerous animal law the keeping of a fox as a PET
IS NOT ALLOWED with the exception of a fennec fox.  You can find this info on the NYDEC webpage.  You can also contact 518-402-8985 if you need further guidance.

NO COLOR RED  RED FOX"
"DOMESTICATED FOX"


It's legal own a red fox in Virginia that meets
 the following definition: " domesticated race of red fox(vulpes vulpes)
with a coat color that can easily be distinguished from a wild red fox". 
Animals that meet this definition are legally defined as "domestic"
and no permit is required. 
No other species of fox 
are allowed (arctic fox, gray fox, etc).
Only red foxes that don't look like a wild one. 
 Examples of foxes that would be legal to own 
would be a silver fox, cross fox,etc.  I hope this helps.
