Texas Unites, founded in 2015, is 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.
Our mission is to provide a system of information, support and guidance by:
• Enhancing professionalism in the animal welfare industry
• Strengthening the human companion animal bond
• Promoting respect and compassion for all life
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.
Your annual membership connects you with the Texas Unites community, providing professional, educational opportunities and collaboration between animal welfare professionals. JOIN TODAY!
