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 challenge of managing medium and large dogs in the shelter setting and finding them speedy, positive outcomes is one of the last unsolved puzzles of the animal welfare movement. Many shelters across the country have nearly stopped euthanizing big dogs because of time limits or lack of available space, but the solution has often been housing the dogs for extended periods of time, which creates a new set of problems for our industry. From reducing intake by keeping more dogs with their families, to providing regular care and enrichment in the shelter, to moving dogs quickly through the shelter system to reduce the overall length of stay, this session will show you how to start saving more big dogs as soon as you get home.
