The association is a special association as, although it has only recently been established, it already runs many activities of national and international scope.

This is also the association with the largest and youngest membership from the Vietnam Welfare Association. Nguyen Ngoc My, chairman of the VAWA, expressed hope that members of the Vietnam Cat Association will become the leaders in social work for cats and other animals. Also, during the ceremony, the chairman of the VAWA awarded the establishment decision to Nguyen Xuan Son, chairman of the association.

Sharing about the plans for the Vietnam Cat Association next year, Nguyen Xuan Son said the association aims to admit the cat associations of  Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, and some major provinces, while at the same time establishing more cat associations in the provinces of Haiphong, Danang, Dalat, and Can Tho.

In addition, the association will hold at least three cat shows, including at least one world show in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City with the participation of the World Cat Association.

Other activities that will be promoted by the Vietnam Cat Association in the upcoming time include drafting and completing documents on cat conservation and breeding based on knowledge provided by cat associations around the world, planning towards proposing the world to recognise a cat breed in Vietnam and internationally exchanging partnerships to train "cat specialists" to inspire communities to treat cats fairly.
