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.

Nationally, rabbits are the third-most surrendered species to shelters. You’ll learn best practices for the care of rabbits in the shelter, veterinary care and proven ways of finding great homes, including rabbit handling, sexing, developing an adoption process, publicity and promotion and networking with rabbit rescues in large-scale confiscations and emergencies. This session will have practical recommendations for shelters of all sizes to help rabbits in their communities. Presenting data from several shelters, we’ll also discuss how legislative advocacy and policy changes in California, with the passage of the law prohibiting the sale of rabbits in pet stores, is beginning to have an impact in the volume of rabbits coming into the shelters.
