Professional Training for the Animal Welfare Community

Operation Kindness is expanding its lifesaving animal services by entering the professional training space. The organization will now provide training and education for animal welfare professionals. To make this possible, the organization merged with Texas Unites for Animals.

Training opportunities and required continuing education courses for animal welfare workers will be offered throughout the state, including the annual conference for members of the animal welfare community. Texas Unites will now exist under Operation Kindness, who will provide greater financial and staff support to Texas Unites’ work. Operation Kindness will also provide an expanded audience for Texas Unites programming through connection to Operation Kindness’ network of partners.
