About Us


Minnesota Partnership for Animal Welfare is a collective voice dedicated to the humane treatment of animals in Minnesota through legislation, training, programs and support services.


MnPAW envisions a future where our leadership, advocacy, and training builds a strong collaborative network of animal welfare organizations within Minnesota; promote humane practices and laws for all animals; and decreases the number of unwanted, lost and neglected companion animals.
