Colorado Federation of Animal Welfare Agencies is committed to providing and supporting opportunities for members to work together.  Many of our members are organized regionally in addition to statewide to create more intimate partnerships and tackle shared community challenges.  In addition to regional coalitions our collaboration committee provides monthly conference calls to discuss common issues in our industry and brainstorm solutions together.
