The Future of Animal Welfare

Much of the animal sheltering world has been focused on how to improve the lives of pets that end up in shelters. In this session, Dr. Haston will review a history of animal welfare, examining important trends in the industry, and then build a vision for the opportunities and challenges that we face in the future. It will focus on the importance of the human animal bond and how many constructs and narratives of the past need to be revisited. We will then delve into some of the innovative approaches that are reaching out beyond the shelter walls and into the communities to help not only pet homelessness but really find ways to preserve, improve and grow the bond between people and pets
