Welcome to the Maine Animal Control Association!

The Maine Animal Control Association strives to protect the well being of all animals, domestic or wild. To enforce without prejudice, all state and local laws relevant to all animals and to enforce and educate the community, legislative and administrative personnel on the significance and diversities of the Animal Control Officer. To promote and encourage the opportunities for educational standards and requirements by which the performance of our profession may be measured. And to participate in the active development of resolutions on the state and federal level concerning Animal Welfare and Animal Control. We must always keep a high emphasis on education and training. MACA is committed to doing just that.
