Collaboration Committee

The AWAC Collaboration Committee is committed to consolidating information to help our members find the resources they need to be successful during times of crisis and every day. This webpage will be updated regularly to remain relevant to our partners – if you have a suggestion or addition, please email Anna Jaeger at [email protected] or Sarah Swanty at [email protected] Be part of the conversation on the AWAC Members Only Facebook Group.

Colorado Animal Welfare Resources List

The Collaboration Committee worked with shelters and rescues across the state to compile a comprehensive list of services organized by region, which can be found here.

Services range from acceptance of owner surrenders to SNR and TNR programs for community cats, and transportation. We hope this is a tool for increasing collaboration – please help us add to it, and share it widely.

Coffee & Collaboration

Animal welfare organizations across Colorado are invited to connect with peers and seek opportunities to collaborate at a new virtual series called Coffee & Collaboration. In 2023, these calls will be held Feb. 8, May 3, an in-person meeting at the Colorado Animal Welfare Conference on Sept. 22, and virtually on Nov. 8.  All organizations across the state are welcome to attend – please help us spread the word!

Each video call will have an overview of the topic, and breakout sessions to provide opportunities for attendees to interact and converse, brainstorm, and consider ways to collaborate. Please visit the AWAC Members Only Facebook Group for the latest information.
