Request From the President: Help Amplify the Voice of Shelter Medicine

Dear Animal Welfare Professional,

As our name clearly states, we are all about advancing animal welfare. We value our strategic partnerships with other leaders in the field, including The Association of Shelter Veterinarians (ASV). The ASV wants to ensure that the voice of shelter medicine is heard loud and clear at the national level. They are working hard to secure a place at the most important table in veterinary medicine: The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA)’s House of Delegates. In order to do so, the ASV must qualify as a Constituent Allied Veterinary Organization by adding an additional 100 veterinarians who are members of, or will join, the AVMA.  

How You Can Help Today

Please encourage and support your shelter veterinary teams to join both the AVMA and the ASV to help strengthen the animal welfare voice within the AVMA and the veterinary community.

Thanks, as always, for your leadership making communities better for animals and people.


Jim Tedford, CAWA, is President and CEO of The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement.
