To bring you the critical, timely information you need in a safe way, this year’s conference will take place virtually from July 11-12, 2020, and registration fees will be waived. Featuring twelve free workshops in two tracks—medical and operations—the 2020 ASPCA® Cornell Maddie’s® Shelter Medicine Conference is a unique educational opportunity for veterinarians and other animal welfare professionals to learn from our field of highly regarded speakers.
Animal Care Expo 2020 has moved online! When collaboration is more vital than ever, you can still rely on the Humane Society of the United States to bring the animal welfare community together. While we may not be able to gather in person, we are so excited to instead bring you an interactive virtual conference experience.
Join animal welfare professionals and volunteers from around the world to view nearly 30 sessions on a variety of topics, visit with exhibitors in our virtual exhibit hall, earn continuing education credits and chat with other attendees – all from the comfort of your own home or workspace.
To celebrate our 29th Animal Care Expo, full conference registration is only $29!
