SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!!! Western States No Kill Conference registrants will be invited to a special 2 day post-conference seminar and physical training program with actual shelter dogs, titled "Playing For Life!...a Training & Behavior Program for Sheltered Dogs Featuring Playgroups" by conference speaker, Aimee Sadler. Assisting Aimee for the 2nd time here in NM will be Mike Kaviani, Dog Behavior Program Manager with Austin Pets Alive! This seminar and physical programming training is being held exclusively for conference attendees and will take place on Sunday, March 23rd and Tuesday, March 24th, following the March 22nd conference. Current conference registrants should keep an eye out for an upcoming email with further information and your invitation. For those not yet registered for the conference, seating is limited so please act fast. Last year we had a similar limited number of seats and had a few unhappy people who waited too late and were not able to register. Now that conference attendees will have the good fortune of having this physical component included in their registration, we expect we will have very few open seats remaining very soon. Learn more about Aimee Sadler's playgroups programming by visiting the Animal Farm Foundation playgroups information page: http://animalfarmfoundation.org/pages/Playgroups (Our special thanks again to Animal Farm Foundation and No Kill Nation for helping to make possible, the 2nd annual Western States No Kill Conference.)"
New Mexico Pets ALIVE! is happy to announce
the 2nd Western States No Kill Conference to be held
March 22, 2014 in Albuquerque, NM.
150 attendees from 8 states participated in the 1st Western States No Kill Conference and we look forward to presenting the next building blocks of information to help you duplicate the companion animal welfare success that is happening all across America. There are 300 cities and towns across America (and counting) now saving upwards of 98% of their lost and homeless pets and community cats. Your city or town can too!
This 2nd No Kill conference being held in New Mexico is for all pet owners/guardians, companion animal advocates, rescue groups, animal welfare organizations, animal control/services staff, animal sheltering staff, volunteers and animal lovers who wish to help maximize save/live release rates for lost and homeless pets in their local communities. (**Please note - Seating is limited. Once tickets are sold out, organizers are unable to add additional seating. The 1st conference sold out and there were quite a few people nearer to the day of the conference who did not register in time and were upset that organizers were not able to accomodate more registrants. Please secure your registration while space is available. Registrations are transferable but are not refundable.)
We are thrilled to welcome our guest speakers and presenters:
Sgt. K.W. Bailey, Seagoville Police Department, Animal Services Director in Seagoville, TX
Stacey Coleman, Executive Director, Animal Farm Foundation
Ellen Jefferson, DVM, Executive Director of Austin Pets Alive!
Aimee Sadler, Director of Behavior and Training at Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation
