The annual conference is a great opportunity to get together with animal welfare professionals, volunteers and people who simply care about animals and who want to learn more about animals or how to make a difference during this dynamic three-day conference. This is a great chance to benefit from workshops given by experts in the field as well as to share ideas, information and plans while visiting one of Virginia's historic cities!
The conference features practical information and current topics in animal welfare, which also provide continuing education credits for Humane Investigators and Animal Control Officers, making it possible to earn 15 CEU credit hours.
A special thank you goes out to our Host Agency for the conference! Fredericksburg Regional SPCA
