This is the only conference in the state where every class, event, and award is specifically chosen due to the benefit it provides to animal care, control, and welfare personnel.  Our focus is not volunteers or rescue groups - it is the professionals who do this job day in and day out.  If you want the best training that will provide you with tools to better perform your daily duties, this is the conference you need to attend!
