The first thing you need to know about getting a pet crossing license is that you will need to be able to show proof that you have a “serious need” for the animal and that you are “careful about its welfare.”
The law states that “serious needs” include, but are not limited to, a need for a dog, cat, horse, or bird, as well as a “need to avoid physical contact.”
You’ll need to show that you’ve made a decision to “carefully consider the welfare of the animal” before the license is issued.
The license itself is issued on a temporary basis, but the application is supposed to take at least three months to get approved.
The first step is to submit an application to the DMV.
The DMV will review the application, and if it is approved, you will be allowed to obtain your license within a couple of months.
Once you get your license, you must keep it up to date on all your paperwork.
The requirements vary from state to state, but in general, you’ll need a valid photo ID (not a driver’s license), proof of your income, proof of you being married or living with your dog or cat, proof that your animal is spayed or neutered, and a proof of spay/neuter surgery.
You’ll also need to bring your proof of ownership with you to the license renewal hearing.
The application fee is $125 and, for pet crossing applicants, the DMV will also charge $50 to get the application through the system.
There are a variety of different kinds of licenses available to get, but you’ll generally need a photo ID.
You can also get a license through the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing (DFAS) by filling out a form, and you can also apply for a license online, or you can call the agency at 800-222-6865.
