FIRST-EVER NATIONAL ANIMAL CONTROL APPRECIATION WEEK, APRIL 11-17
The National Animal Control Association (NACA) is proud to announce the first annual celebration of the important work of animal control officers all across the country. Explains NACA board member Kevin Kilgore, “This will be the week that these hard-working and dedicated professionals can finally be honored by having the whole community say thank you for helping when no one else would—or would even know how to.”
