Texas Unites for Animals has merged with Operation Kindness, a partner who shares our mission of enhancing professionalism in the animal welfare industry.
Operation Kindness is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal welfare organization that operates a lifesaving animal shelter and programs to assist people and pets. Texas Unites will now exist as a program of Operation Kindness, who will provide greater financial and staff support to Texas Unites’ work.
Texas Unites will continue to host training opportunities and continuing education courses for animal welfare professionals from across the industry. As before, we are here to support you with resources to advance your career and strengthen the impact of your animal welfare related work. Now, with the support of Operation Kindness, we look forward to growing and expanding as a state-wide resource to all animal welfare professionals.
Texas Unites is a program of Operation Kindness. The goals of this program are to:
• Enhance professionalism in the animal welfare industry
• Strengthen the human and companion animal bond
• Promote respect and compassion for all life
Texas Unites was founded in 2015 as an animal welfare support organization serving Texas and its surrounding states. Texas Unites was a merging of two well respected organizations, North Central Texas Animal Shelter Coalition and Texas Federation of Humane Societies, both with a long history of supporting the animal welfare community.
The Texas Unites for Animals Conference is the heart of Texas Unites’ mission. At the annual Texas Unites for Animals Conference, over 500 animal welfare professionals from across the state of Texas and the surrounding region come together for quality professional development and networking opportunities.
