2009 No Kill Conference

"Amazing!" "This was the best conference I have ever attended!"

"It was one of the best experiences I've had in animal rescue. To see so many with the same passion that I have which I didn't think was possible - was wonderful."

Even if you were not able to attend, you can participate and learn from a revolutionary gathering of animal lawyers, shelter managers, and No Kill advocates working to end the systematic killing of animals in U.S. shelters.

Our heartfelt thanks to all who made the No Kill Conference in Washington DC a tremendous success. We had representatives from 37 states, the District of Columbia, and six countries (the United States, Canada, Australia, Sweden, France, and Thailand). Thank you to the attendees, to the speakers, to the sponsors, to the hosts, to the supporters, and to the George Washington University Animal Law Program for making it possible.

No Kill 2009

The nation's most successful organizations, shelter directors, and animal lawyers came together for an inspiring and revolutionary conference to end the killing of animals in U.S. shelters.

They taught attendees how to achieve No Kill; how to legislate, litigate, and lobby for change; and how to reform local shelters.

A No Kill nation is within our reach!
