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 you with the tools you need to start or expand an intake by appointment program while getting your pet resource center organized to save more lives and keep families together. Intake by appointment will help control the flood of animals being surrendered and give pet owners additional time to find alternatives to surrendering their animals. Meanwhile, resource centers provide owners with tools to help them work through the behavioral, medical and financial problems that typically lead people to consider surrendering their furry family members. This session will include an interactive element to ensure everyone leaves with the tools needed to help keep pets in their homes.
