How did MnPAW start?
Leaders from Pet Haven of Minnesota and Animal Humane Society met in early 2009 to explore building a coalition of animal organizations to work toward a shared goal of reducing euthanasia rates in Minnesota. They believe that a core requirement for a successful coalition is working together in a positive, collaborative, respectful manner while focusing on common ground and shared goals. They had heard from other animal welfare leaders and recognized the need and the opportunity to engage a variety of participants to begin a conversation about the mission, values, and goals of an inclusive animal welfare coalition in Minnesota.
