The North Carolina Animal Federation was formed in 2006 with the purpose of uniting North Carolina animal welfare organizations. We strive to exchange ideas and information while working collectively to elevate the standard of care and level of knowledge related to animal welfare in the state of North Carolina.
The mission of the North Carolina Animal Federation is to advance leadership through collaboration, professional development, legislative participation, and education for animal welfare organizations and law enforcement in North Carolina.
We work behind the scenes supporting the work of animal welfare professionals across North Carolina through legislative advocacy, professional development, and creating a network of animal professionals throughout the state that support each other in ensuring positive outcomes for animals and their families in our communities.
In 2006, there was an effort to have a unified voice in North Carolina on animal issues. Through this effort, a statewide federation formed consisting of animal welfare professionals. Originally representatives from throughout the state met monthly to establish the purpose and structure of the federation.
During 2006 and 2007, the founders worked with a consultant who had helped form other state humane federations and regional coalitions. Originally, the group identified the goals of legislation, professional training, professional networking and establishing ourselves as industry experts in the state.
As the coalition developed and by laws were developed, the North Carolina Animal Federation (fondly known as NCAF) was officially formed. Collectively, we continue to elevate the standard of care and level of knowledge related to animal welfare in the state of North Carolina.
