If you would like to apply for an Animal Welfare (AWA) license/registration or renew your current license/registration – or if you have any questions – please contact the USDA Animal Care office below.
For help determining which license and /or registration(s) you need, Launch the Licensing and Registration Assistant, a self-service tool that takes between 5 and 15 minutes to indicate which license and /or registration(s), if any, you require.
Thank you for your interest in using Animal Care’s Licensing and Registration Assistant (LRA). Please note that with the implementation of our new licensing rule on November 9, 2020 we have updated our licensing and registration application packets. When using the LRA please navigate back to this page to access the most updated application packets rather than the packet linked on the results page of the LRA. Using the most updated application packets ensures the most timely processing of your application. Additionally, Animal Care is working diligently to update the LRA.
