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 will provide a foundation for animal capture and handling in the field. We will demonstrate commonly accessible and available commercial handling and capture equipment utilizing techniques and approaches that can be applied to domestic, unsocialized and wild animals. The bulk of the session will be comprised of interactive discussions accompanied by demonstrations using situations and questions from attendees. This will be a participant-driven session in which we will discuss and address the scenarios and challenges you encounter in the field.
