No More Homeless Pets Conference- APA! will be represented!
Oct 23, 2008
Best Friends is sponsoring a No More Homeless Pets Conference in Las Vegas this weekend. FixAustin.org and Central Texas Animal Alliance have generously sponsored all of Ellen Jefferson's trip to the conference and part of Gretchen Meyer's trip. http://network.bestfriends.org/conferences/news
We are both very excited about going and learning about other cities' efforts and about the latest greatest ideas on how to become a No Kill City.
Austin Pets Alive! has made a big difference over the last few months in Town Lake Animal Center's death rate. In July, we decreased dog deaths by 25%!!!! Even though these numbers are exciting, we have to remember that we had to leave the other 75% behind to die. We hope that through learning and expanding our vision, we can grow to accommodate all the pets that currently dying at TLAC.
