NACA Membership

All across this country, municipal officials and the general public are grappling with the health and safety hazards of unwanted and uncontrolled animals. Thousands of community animal shelters are bulging with forgotten and abandoned dogs and cats, the disposable victims of a "throwaway" society. Rabies outbreaks, interrupted mail service, livestock and game losses--these are the results of animal control problems. Millions of loving pets must be destroyed each year because people neither want them nor love them enough to take proper care of them.

In the center of this major public problem is a team of local officials working diligently to prevent abuses, to enforce the laws, to prosecute violations, to legislate for more modern statutes and to solve the problem. The team is the men and women who belong to the National Animal Control Association (NACA).
