We are excited to announce that the California Animal Control Directors Association and the State Humane Association of California have merged into one association. Now the California Animal Welfare Association (aka"CalAnimals"), we are the unified voice of California's animal care and control agencies, SPCAs, humane societies and other animal welfare organizations. 

Together. For the animals. For our communities.
