Best Friends National Conference @ Westin Bonaventure Hotel and Suites
Jul 21 all-day

Imagine being in a room surrounded by people who love animals as much as you do. Some work for animal welfare organizations, some are veterinarians or vet techs, some are board members of animal shelters and others volunteer for rescue groups. Each and every one of them is deeply committed to saving the lives of homeless pets — and each has something valuable to teach and share with others.
