SAWA membership has doubled over the past three years. Why? Because our seasoned professional members offer reliable support to their colleagues and the industry by:
- Demonstrating and mentoring ethical, sound and innovative business practices.
- Providing examples of animal welfare and animal care, including control guidelines and tools.
- Collaborating with industry allies to guide our future.
In addition to these seasoned leaders’ support and mentoring, SAWA provides a wealth of resources to support you and your important work as an animal welfare administrator. Please take five minutes to browse the existing SAWA resources provided below.
