About the Best Friends National Conference

Imagine sitting in a room surrounded by people who love animals as much as you do. Some work for animal welfare organizations, some are veterinarians, some are board members of animal shelters and still others volunteer for rescue groups in their area. Each and every one of them is deeply committed to saving the lives of homeless pets, and each has something valuable to teach and share with others.

Sounds pretty amazing, right? Well, that’s reality at the Best Friends National Conference, presented by Maddie's Fund.

The conference brings like-minded people together, including some of the nation’s leading and cutting-edge authorities in animal welfare, to share strategies and exchange ideas. It’s a great place to learn how we can all work together to bring the country to no-kill by 2025. And it’s an amazing opportunity to be a part of something groundbreaking.

Last year, more than 1,300 people attended the conference, eager to hobnob with some of the most notable names in animal welfare. It’s a remarkable testament to how the no-kill movement has grown over the past 15 years and how its message is resonating with people, inspiring them to Save Them All.

So, what are you waiting for?
