About

Animal Welfare
Association of Colorado

The Animal Welfare Association of Colorado was formed by the historic merger of two organizations in 2020. Two longstanding organizations, the Colorado Association of Animal Control Officers and the Colorado Federation of Animal Welfare Agencies, merged to better serve all of the professionals in the state’s animal welfare and care and control organizations.

AWAC exists to focus on issues that affect animals and communities in Colorado. Through professional development, advocacy, and collaboration, AWAC represents a powerful voice in the protection of companion animals in Colorado. AWAC is committed to enhancing the Colorado network of humane communities for all pets and people.
