The animal welfare field is fueled by compassionate individuals who share a deep love of animals. At the same time, that compassion has not always been extended to the other side of the leash. Fear and bias have created structural barriers to adoption, unequal access to pet care resources, and missed opportunities to accomplish our lifesaving goals. Together, we will learn how to identify outdated practices and policies while addressing the underlying, well-intentioned concerns that have kept them in place.
Attendees will hear how peer organizations throughout the United States have embraced a fresh and more equitable approach to supporting the bond between pets and the diverse range of people who love them. The future of animal welfare is bright and we have an unprecedented opportunity to make positive change!
