2017 National Conferences

Michigan Pet Fund Alliance has a Getting to the Goal No Kill conference every other year, so we will not be having one in 2017. However, there are several national conferences which offer great opportunities for learning, networking, and getting re-charged to save more animals. Mark your calendar for one of these:

Today, the Best Friends National Conference remains one of the most powerful weekends of inspiration, education and collaboration on behalf of our nation's pets."
