The Missouri Animal Control Association (MACA) was founded in 1977 for the purpose of providing professional training, education and support for Animal Care & Control professionals across Missouri and neighboring States. Our membership includes animal control officers, humane investigators, law enforcement officers, veterinarians, animal shelter managers, and many others working in the field of Animal Care and Control. Our members share the common goal of improving the welfare of animals through education, law enforcement, and legislation. MACA provides access to training and networking for its members.
