No More Homeless Pets Conference, October 24-26, 2008
About the Conference
With a focus on both tried and true lifesaving programs as well as exciting, cutting-edge approaches in grassroots animal welfare, this is one event you can't afford to miss!
Be inspired by great speakers from across the country, including Holly Sizemore (executive director of No More Homeless Pets in Utah), Cimeron Morrissey (Animal Planet Cat Hero of the Year and founder of Project Bay Cat), Cynthia Bathurst (principal director and co-founder of Safe Humane Chicago) and Mike Arms (president of Helen Woodward Animal Center). You'll also have the opportunity to meet Paul Berry, Chief Executive Officer of Best Friends.
Join us to learn more about fighting puppy mills and pet stores, saving cats in your community, helping bully breeds, raising more money for your organization, increasing adoptions, reaching people with your spay/neuter message, city planning, and more!

Who Should Attend?
Whether you're an animal welfare professional or simply an individual who cares deeply about animals, you'll get practical information, inspiration and advice from the people who are creating lasting change for the animals.
Is achieving a country with No More Homeless Pets possible? You bet it is! Every day, more progress is being made, more lives are being saved. But there is still work to be done, and all of us have a part to play.
Whether you've always wondered what you as an individual could do to achieve a world of No More Homeless Pets, or always wondered what more your rescue group or shelter could do, Best Friends invites you to join us for the much-anticipated return of the No More Homeless Pets National Conference, scheduled for October 24-26, 2008 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Attendees will also be able to take a fun and informative trip to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary immediately after the conference as part of a special group tour. (We're sorry ~ the Sanctuary Visit trip is now full. To be placed on a wait list or for information on visiting on your own, please email firstname.lastname@example.org)
And this is one instance where what happens in Vegas won't stay in Vegas...you'll walk away raring to go, and well-equipped to help homeless pets in your own community.
You'll learn how to:
• Build membership and raise funds you need
• Place "unadoptable" animals
• Work with government to help feral cats
• Put puppy mills out of business
• Rally support using the Internet
• Get along with, ahem, challenging people
• Develop targeted spay/neuter programs
Right now, history is being made, and every person who joins the fight brings our shared goal of No More Homeless Pets a little bit closer. We sincerely hope to see you in Las Vegas.
The panelists and presenters include some of the nation's leading experts in the areas of adoption, spay/neuter, fundraising, communication, and shelter management.
