Welcome to NACA's Online Community!

We have created this online space for NACA members to be able to create dynamic member profiles, collaborate together on projects, share your ideas and expertise with others – and, most important, connect with fellow NACA members.

Share, collaborate, exchange and grow – that's why we're here, and we hope you are too. Engage and explore the new site, there are many exciting features that we hope you will find useful. As with any new site, there may be some areas that are not fully functional yet. Please bear with us and know that we will continually work to improve the member experience. If you find areas that appear broken, or have ideas on additional features you would like to see available on the new site, please let us know.

Welcome. We're glad you're here!

Starting in January 2019, the NACA will be partnering with Justice Clearinghouse to offer webinars on a monthly basis to the NACA audience. NACA members have spoken and we have heard – animal care and control training is hard to come by and oftentimes very expensive to participate in.



Message From The President

Dear NACA Members,


I can’t believe it almost December and the Holiday Season is fast approaching! This has been a very interesting and thrilling year for our association! Your board has been busy, moving forward and making changes that will bring each of you more benefits and resources while at the same time make NACA a stronger presence in the animal care and control profession.


Our profession is constantly growing and changing to keep up with the demands placed on us all each day. As your national voice, we too must adapt to the current needs of our membership so over the next few months you will notice many changes within NACA. Please be patient, there may be a few bumps in the road as we work hard to provide you with the very best organization that lives up to the high standards you deserve!


Currently we are making some improvements to our membership software and policy. All individual memberships will now expire on your anniversary date. We originally had set all memberships to expire on December 31 of each year, but after hearing from many of you, we have decided it is in your best interest to have membership expire 1 year from the date you sign up. If this improvement causes you any problem or concerns, please contact our executive office at


As I mentioned above, please keep an eye out for the next year as we bring you many new benefits, services, and what is shaping up to be, a very exciting conference and training symposium in Orlando, Florida.



Wishing you all a very happy and safe holiday season!

PetSmart Charities® Scholarships

Thanks to a generous grant from PetSmart Charities, fifteen scholarships were provided to NACA members.

PetSmart Charities, Inc. is a nonprofit organization with a mission to find lifelong, loving homes for all pets by supporting programs and thought leadership that bring people and pets together. In addition to finding homes for more than 500,000 homeless pets each year through its in-store adoption program in all PetSmart stores across the U.S. and Puerto Rico, PetSmart Charities provides funding to non-profits and municipalities aligned with its mission through four key areas of grant support: Preventing Pet Homelessness; Helping Shelter Pets Thrive; Supporting the Bond Between People and Pets; and Emergency Relief and Disaster Support.

NACA Updates Membership Types

On October 20, 2017, during the Annual Business Meeting, the NACA Membership voted to change the NACA Bylaws to better define the NACA Membership types, and to clarify the benefits of each membership type.

Visit the NACA Membership Benefits page to see all the benefits for each membership type.

Visit the NACA Bylaws page to review the updated bylaws.

The NACA Board of Directors has set new membership pricing for the various member types. The new membership fees will go into effect on January 1, 2018. The new membership fees can be found on the Membership page.

Also beginning on January 1, 2018, members of Current Affiliated State Association Partners will be able to use a special promo code issued by their State Association to receive special pricing on their NACA Individual Membership. Your State Association will need to renew their Affiliated State Association Partnership before the promo code is issued to the State Association.

If you have forgotten your log in information, contact the NACA Corporate Office, by calling 913-768-1319, or by sending us an e-mail at, for assistance. If you think you are a current member, do not create a new member ID, contact the Executive Office for assistance.
