ANIMAL WELFARE CONFERENCE ATTRACTS RECORD NUMBER OF DELEGATES
The Association of Dogs and Cats Homes Conference (ADCH) has attracted the highest attendance in the conference’s 12 year history.
Chaired by Dogs Trust’s Chief Executive, Clarissa Baldwin, and hosted by Cats Protection, the ADCH brings together dog and cat welfare organisations to share best practice and further improve the help given to over 250,000 unwanted animals in the UK. During the conference, delegates heard presentations on a range of issues such as animal hoarding and abandonment, alongside talks on fundraising, the law and digital communications.
Clarissa Baldwin, Dogs Trust’s Chief Executive, said: “It was an absolute privilege to see a packed auditorium with over 320 delegates at this year’s conference. We are enormously grateful to all of our speakers for contributing such insightful and relevant presentations. This conference has become a valuable forum for like-minded people to come together to learn and share best practice in animal welfare. We hope to top this success next year.”
Nick Edmans, Cats Protection’s Director of Communications added:
“I’d like to thank the sponsors, trade exhibitors and delegates for helping to make this the biggest ADCH conference yet, and hope they found the presentations interesting and thought-provoking. Ultimately, the ideas shared at the conference will help to improve the skills and knowledge of ADCH members, and improve the care and adoption of unwanted cats and dogs.”
The ADCH Conference is held on an annual basis, and next year’s conference will be hosted by the Kennel Club. Membership of the ADCH is open to charities and not for profit organisations of all sizes, regardless of scale and turnover. For further information, please visit www.adch.org.uk.
