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.

You want to provide the best possible humane care at your shelter, but you’re not located in a tech mecca and funds are tight. There is a way! In this session, we will discuss No Kill South Carolina’s shelter assessment program and present photos and videos that show shelter standards not being met even though managers are often unaware of the problems. In every assessment No Kill South Carolina has conducted, humane care could be significantly improved by addressing space allocation and animal flow and by developing, implementing and enforcing standard operating procedures. Fortunately, these types of improvements can be achieved for a minimal cost.

Continuing Education

This program has been approved for 1.5 hours of continuing education credit for NACA members.
