||Attendance at this conference is essential for everyone involved in companion animal policy and practice -including those working in all levels of government, the not for profit welfare, shelter and rescue sector, and veterinary and pet industries.
More and more people are turning to the resources available in the community such as local government and not for profits for guidance on how to solve their animal management and welfare problems. What issues could be prevented or minimised by these resources working proactively within the community? This and many more topics relating to community welfare, animal welfare, and responsible pet ownership will be discussed at this event. Industry and sector leaders from Australia and overseas will lead sessions to explore innovative solutions to guide Australia’s approach to the management of companion animals now and into the future while providing insights on how the challenges are being met elsewhere. A summit is a strategic conversation, convening the leaders of the sector, which brings different perspectives within a system together to talk about the big picture and big questions.
