Do I need a license to rescue animals?

Yes. Agriculture Department issues license to qualified people. Rescues can only receive from other rescues or owner surrenders. It is illegal to pick up animals at random and rescue/foster without going through the proper channels. Fosters generally work under the rescues license.
