Certified Animal Welfare Administrator (CAWA)

The Certified Animal Welfare Administrator (CAWA) program independently validates and recognizes those who can demonstrate that they possess the experience and competencies required for practice as a high-level manager working in animal sheltering and field services. In 2014, a diverse group of subject-matter experts in animal welfare, care and control performed an extensive job analysis of the knowledge and skills needed for competent practice in today's environment. A new CAWA exam launched in Spring 2020.
