About Us


Minnesota Partnership for Animal Welfare is a coalition of agencies working together to improve the welfare of animals in MN.

Core Values


We recognize that through collaboration and mutual support – both with the organizations we partner with and the communities we serve – that we can make a greater and more positive impact in the lives of companion animals.


We believe that open and honest communication is critical to our collective voice. To lead and advocate we must have trust and teamwork; the ability to exchange ideas for the betterment of us all to fulfill our mission.


We support innovative, new ways of thinking that will enable us to better harness the creativity, passion and resources of our members and community partnerships.


We strive to demonstrate a high level of compassion and respect; fostering inclusiveness and trust to strengthen the relationships with our members and community to lead and influence responsibly.


We demonstrate strong moral and ethical principles to positively influence humane animal welfare in Minnesota.
