I had the pleasure of attending the Animal Care Expo put on by The Human Society of the United States. All I can say is WOW. It was a great opportunity to network with others in the rescue field from all over the world. I think they had about 1,400 folks from 44 different countries. I am very luck that I live in Orlando where the conference was held this year.
On Wednesday I attended a session called Match Up II from the Center for Shelter Dogs which is a program at Animal Rescue League of Boston. The program introduced a systematic way of temperament testing dogs as they come into a shelter. The program looks wonderful and I hope we are able to implement it at Pet Rescue by Judy.
On Friday, I attended a grant writing class and visited the Expo. The grant writing class had many tips on the proper way to write a grant. This is definitely an area I would like to explore more. The expo was interesting as well.
All in all, it was a great conference.
