National No Kill Conference, 2009

National No Kill Conference, May 2-3, 2009

Save the dates: May 203, 2009 for a national No Kill conference unlike any you have ever been to.  The No Kill Advocacy Center is teaming up with the Animal Law program at George Washington University Law School to bring together the nation’s most successful shelter directors and the nation’s top animal lawyers.  They will help you create a No Kill community and teach you how to use the legal system to save the lives of animals.

Learn from animal control directors who are now saving over 90% of all animals using the building blocks to No Kill success - programs and services that have had results in both urban and rural communities - to increase adoptions, reduce lengths of stay, increase redemption rates, rehabilitate animals, and much, much more.

Learn from animal law experts who have challenged our legal system to help animals: Whether it’s drafting model laws, fighting breed specific legislation, eliminating the gas chamber, filing impact legislation, or protecting condemned dogs, learn how to use the legal system to save the lives of animals.

Learn from activists fighting entrenched and regressive shelters in their own community as they show you how to launch successful campaigns for reform.

Where: Washington D.C.

When: May 2-3, 2009

Who should attend?  Creating a better world for animals takes a community.  And the community starts with you!  This conference is for anyone who cares about the plight of homeless animals in shelters.  We specifically encourage community leaders, shelter volunteers, animal activists, employees, staff, directors, board members, Good Samaritans and rescuers to attend.  We also encourage lawyers, law students, and anyone who wants to learn how to use the legal system to help save the lives of companion animals.

About the conference: This conference will present two concurrent tracks. (However, attendees can attend workshops in either or both sessions.) The sheltering track or “No Kill Equation” is for shelter administrators, rescue groups, volunteers, and activists working to reform their local shelter or improve rates of lifesaving.

The legal track or ”Life-Saving Policy” is for law students, lawyers, academics, paralegals, and those outside of the law field such as board members, shelter administrators, activists, and anyone interested in learning how to use the law to create No Kill communities and otherwise save the lives of animals.  CLE credit will be offered.

We’ll see you in Washington, DC as we build a No Kill nation and help change the legal landscape for animals.
