Due to the risk posed by the coronavirus (COVID-19) the Humane Rescue Alliance, PAWS, and St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center have decided to cancel this conference for April 8-10. We do plan to reschedule the conference at a later date and will update this website once we have more information.
Refunds for current registration fees will be issued. If you have reserved a hotel room at the Princess Royale Hotel please contact them directly to cancel your reservation.
Thank you for your understanding and patience as we all navigate through this situation together.
