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.

The Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando (PAGO) established the Pet Apartment Registry in 2017 to reduce shelter intake of dogs due to housing issues. PAGO commissioned an economic impact study to show the financial impact of accepting all dogs regardless of breed or size. The resulting increase in housing options has led to a notable decrease in the number of dogs surrendered due to housing issues—from 19.9% in January 2017 to 10% in January 2019. This session is for attendees of any experience level and will include practical tips and lessons on how to effectively engage property owners in your community.
