How do I register to have a legal rescue?

So I'm starting up a cat rescue, but I've hit a snag. I'm sure there are animal laws everywhere, and I don't want people busting down our front door and saying we need to get rid of our cats because we have too many. So if someone could supply me with information, that would be fantastic. I'd like to know if I have to legally register somewhere to be able to start this shelter, and if so, where and how? Thanks in advance!

    Talk with your city or town's council representative and animal warden to get started on finding out the local and state restrictions as well as any registration.

    No one can possibly tell you anything without knowing where you live.

    But your first step would be contacting your city government for zoning laws.
