Whether you are part of a non-profit or municipal agency, Animal Welfare Organizations have to operate within a budget. Organizations find themselves trying to meet the needs of citizens, both two and four-legged. However, animal welfare organizations find themselves at a crossroads between responding to requests for service and adhering to the mission of the organization. In the never-ending struggle to please everyone, is your organization’s mission taking a backseat to placating the next complaint? In this session, we will explore some of the common pitfalls organizations fall into that compete with their mission.
The National Animal Care & Control Association (NACA) was formed in 1978 for the express purpose of assisting its members to perform their duties in a professional manner. We believe only carefully selected and properly trained animal control personnel can correct community problems resulting from irresponsible animal ownership. NACA’s purpose is to preserve the Human/Animal Bond by insisting on responsible animal ownership.
