Animal Care Expo

Expo, a world-class educational conference and full-scale international trade show, is designed for anyone who works or volunteers at the local level with dogs, cats, or other animals. The goal of this annual event is to help people working in the fields of animal sheltering, care, control, rescue, and disaster planning and response do the best and most efficient jobs possible.

The 2013 Animal Care Expo was held in Tennessee in early May and touched on some timely issues.

Date: May 20-23, 2014
Location: Daytona Beach, Fla.

Humane Lobby Days

Humane Lobby Days are events sponsored by The HSUS where citizen animal advocates like you gather to learn and practice lobbying for animal protection laws at the state level. Each is a full-day event including a lobbying workshop and an overview of relevant bills in your state legislature. Appointments are made for you with your state legislators so that you can meet with them (or their staff) face to face and ask for animal-friendly votes.

Date: Ongoing; find an event near you
Location: Nationwide
