Welcome to WACA

The Washington Animal Control Association (WACA) was formally created January 22, 1983. WACA is an organization dedicated to promoting professionalism and excellence in animal care, education, and enforcement while protecting animal welfare and public safety through training and support.

The purpose of this website is to provide you every opportunity to participate with us in our goal to “Protect People and Pets.” Here you will find the resources you need to become an Animal Control Officer including the training and conference schedules.

WACA Challenge coins now available!

We are hoping to hold some continuing education training at CJTC for all ACO’s. Make sure your membership is current to receive discounted training. Have a topic you would like to see available? Please email info@washingtonanimalcontrolassociation.org
