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.

Despite challenges and obstacles, a group of Palestinian animal lovers was able to effectuate much change with minimal means. Through volunteerism and social media, the Palestinian Animal League (PAL) was able to transition from a grassroots initiative to an implementor of institutional programming, leveraging international support and solidarity in just a few short years. Come and learn of PAL’s experience and leave inspired to further your own work.
