Memberships in The Federation run by calendar year. We are currently accepting members for 2015. If you are interested in joining The Federation, here are the standard benefits you will enjoy as a member:
The Federation administers a grant fund for member agencies in order to increase the total number of spay/neuter surgeries performed by their organization. Member agencies can also apply for Emergency Animal Relief funding in the event of a disaster or emergency. For example, to purchase a generator in the event of a flood.
Members receive notice of upcoming Federation sponsored regional trainings as well as lower, members-only registration fees. All Member organizations receive one $15 coupon towards a Federation-sponsored workshop.
The Federation maintains a presence in Olympia and tracks legislation affecting animals in our state. Members receive periodic updates on animal welfare legislative issues and have a voice in the promotion of animal welfare in Washington State. The Federation networks with local and national agencies to leverage the influence that our vast membership can have on policymakers.
The Federation annually surveys animal organizations throughout the state, revealing trends in the Washington State shelter system, both by species and by services. Member agencies receive free on-line access to the survey results.
Voting memberships in the Federation are available to agencies working for the protection of animals under RCW 16.52, animal control agencies, and charitable organizations dedicated to the benefit of animals.
Non-voting memberships are available to companies providing products and services to the animal care industry, out of state agencies and individuals.
