REGISTRATION is now open for participation in the National Animal Welfare Conference, being held at the Costa Narejos Hotel, Los Alcazares, Murcia from October 16-18.
The Proteccion Animales España (PAES) conference is believed to be the first of its kind in Spain. Three animal welfare organisations from Murcia and Almeria; ACTIN, San Animal and Cruz Azul, are collaborating on the PAES Project which is creating great initiatives and programmes, including the National Animal Welfare Conference.
The conference is aimed at those who would like to learn more about running their own trap, neuter and return campaigns; volunteers involved in shelters, sanctuaries, rescue groups and foster pet parents, as well as anyone who loves animals and wants to get involved.
Delegates will be able to learn about the lifesaving changes taking place across the country and the organisers are confident that they will take those ideas back to pets in shelters, and with rescue groups, in their home towns.
“Our mission is to bring together as many people as we can who are involved in animal welfare in Spain, to encourage co-operation and exchange of ideas” said Lyn Baines, Conference Manager. “We will be launching the PAES Project at the conference and will have some exceptional speakers.”
“We have speakers from all over Europe who will share their expertise and experiences with our delegates” commented Lyn: “We know how hard it is running an animal welfare charity, so we have kept the registration donations as low as possible, so that we can engage as many people as possible.”
