Animal Care Expo 2020

After an exhaustive process of due diligence conversations and staff preparation efforts regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, we have come to the difficult decision to cancel Animal Care Expo 2020 on May 6-9 in San Antonio, TX. We know this message is not the one many of you were hoping to receive. For others, it may be the challenging and difficult decision you hoped the HSUS might reach. Please know that all of you reading this message are in our thoughts.

It is with deep regret that we must make this unfortunate announcement, and we invite you to click the button below to read on and learn more about the decision to cancel and next steps.

This session focuses on improving public perception of animal control officers and animal shelters. Do you know where the terms “dog catcher” and “dog pound” came from and why these negative and inaccurate stereotypes still exist? Learn new ways to implement proactive community engagement initiatives and see how the work of animal control officers intertwines with and contributes to the success of the Pets for Life program. “Socially conscious” and “no-kill” shelters are common in our industry, but do you know the difference between the two? Use what you learn in this seminar to implement change in your community and the culture of your department. The future of animal welfare will be captured in this action-packed session!
