The official TAFA hotel
The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) makes every effort to keep participant expenses at Taking Action for Animals (registration fees and hotel accommodations) as low as possible. We work hard to negotiate the best hotel rates and to make the best use of your registration dollars to keep TAFA affordable. We encourage all participants to reserve a room with the official TAFA hotel. When anyone pays the registration fee and reserves a room with the official TAFA hotel, they are helping to support TAFA 2023 and future conferences.
The hotel booking link is the only approved method to reserve a room in the official Taking Action for Animals block. The HSUS is not working with a housing agency for TAFA 2023. Beware of any unsolicited information from housing agencies misrepresenting that they are reserving rooms on behalf of the HSUS or Taking Action for Animals.
Companies have been known to solicit our participants and exhibitors with offers of lower rates or nonexistent inventory of hotel rooms. Often referred to as "housing pirates" or "housing bandits," they will phone or email participants and exhibitors of events such as Taking Action for Animals. It is important to remember these companies are falsely claiming to be affiliated with Taking Action for Animals or HSUS. To protect yourself against these scams, book only using this housing link. Please report any suspicious solicitations, including phone number, email address or web link to us via email.
