Cornville AZ (July 31, 2019) – The Northern Arizona Animal Welfare Coalition is a new non-profit organization dedicated to supporting animal welfare organizations across Northern Arizona. Headquartered in the Verde Valley, the group recently received its 501(c)(3) designation from the Internal Revenue Service.
Representatives from various animal shelters and rescue organizations throughout the Verde Valley have been invited to participate in the group.
According to the group’s mission statement, NAAWC recognizes and supports the ongoing efforts of the community’s animal shelters, rescue organizations, animal welfare service providers and other affiliated organizations working to help pets in need across northern Arizona.
Their goal is to build and nurture existing animal welfare programs by offering opportunities for networking, collective purchasing, cooperative grant opportunities, and event collaboration. NAAWC will also provide peer support, encouragement, resources and recognition, work to enhance member organizations’ influence and credibility, and facilitate professional development and training.
Serving as president of the group is Rebecca Poling, a Verde Valley resident who has worked with similar groups in other states. “Coalitions are invaluable in advocacy because they create structures for organizations and individuals who share ownership of common goals. Animal welfare is hard work physically and emotionally, but we can do it better together,” Poling said.
