If You are an Animal Care Professional
Who is Ready to Start Using WelfareTrak®…


Ask yourself the following question: does a welfare survey exist for the species that I would like to monitor?

To answer this question, please visit the Survey Library to view a list of existing welfare surveys that are available for use.

If the answer is YES -    please read the Registration section below


If the answer is NO -      you have two options:

  1. Request CZS’ services. You can hire CZS to recruit experts to develop a WelfareTrak-certified survey for your species of interest. This option covers the first year of registration. As a bonus, if you choose to split this cost with other organizations, we include free first-year registration for up to 10 organizations. The new survey will be uploaded to the Survey Library.
  2. Create a customized survey. Our Tool Development Manual will walk you through the process of designing a new survey. Keep in mind that this customized survey can only be employed by your organization - it will not be incorporated into our Survey Library.
