Great Lakes Animal Welfare Conference
October 22-23, 2018
GREAT LAKES ANIMAL WELFARE CONFERENCE
Don’t miss the 2018 Great Lakes Animal Welfare Conference, October 22-23, presented by the Michigan Humane Society!
The region’s largest annual animal welfare training and networking event takes place in one central location – the enchanting FireKeepers Casino Hotel in Battle Creek, Michigan.
For two days, conference attendees are immersed in sessions, events, and the latest research, theories and program applications. Participants include frontline caregivers, animal fosters, veterinarians, board members, volunteers and more looking to learn and connect with colleagues from across the region.
This year, our theme is “One Team, One Goal.” We’re proud to welcome keynote speaker, Britney Wallesch, Founder and Executive Director of Black Dog Animal Rescue, a foster-based dog and cat rescue headquartered in Cheyenne, WY. Started ten years ago in her apartment, BDAR has grown to become the largest companion pet rescue in the state of Wyoming.
The Association of Animal Welfare Advancement Leadership Track
We are excited to announce that we are partnering with The Association of Animal Welfare Advancement once again. The Association will be sponsoring a Leadership Track at the conference.
