Animal Welfare Conference

Connect with experts and colleagues

The Colorado Animal Welfare Conference has served Colorado and the surrounding region with high caliber training opportunities for more than 10 years. The conference has grown steadily as more animal welfare professionals discover the benefits of interaction with nationally-known experts and with their colleagues across the Rocky Mountain region.

Sponsors assist attendees in meeting challenges

Whether it is the latest shelter software or new and successful methods for assisting staff members in their daily roles, there are numerous opportunities to interact with sponsors at the conference. Be sure to visit them at their booths, fill out your Sponsor Passport, sample helpful equipment, view the latest in techniques and strategies, and say thank you for sponsoring the conference. The conference would not exist without them.
