The National Animal Care & Control Association was established in 1978 in order to train professionals in proper animal handling and care–and equip them to step into situations where improper animal training or abuse is present to public safety threats and health issues. The association provides an amazing service across the country, with members in hundreds of communities helping to improve the quality of life for both pets and their owners. To recognize the decades of service the NACA has contributed, this week is Animal Care & Control Appreciation Week!
The association is founded in a solid base of core values:
The week has numerous celebratory events around the nation, which include appearances at association centers by important public figures, speeches, sponsored meals for members, and awards given to various members and community leaders who have gone above and beyond in their work.
If you wish to take part in honoring these incredible people who do so much to protect pet welfare, you could do things like sending flowers or cards to your local NACA gr0up. You might even be inspired to participate in official NACA training and become a member yourself in order to contribute directly to the community service the association encourages.
The NACA website also has resources and an active online community that helps link people who care about pet health and quality of life. Even if you don’t become a full-fledged member, you can still learn ways to safely observe and intervene when pets are being mistreated in your area, or how to contact association members so they can professionally handle the situation many have dedicated their lives to.
And be sure to spread the word about this wonderful organization so even more people can celebrate their work and even join in the effort.
