4th Annual Maddie’s Shelter Medicine Conference

We are please to invite veterinarians, technicians, and program managers to two full days of continuing education during the Fourth Annual Maddie’s Shelter Medicine Conference.

We are delighted to bring a great breadth of speaker expertise to this conference. Many of the topics, including behavior assessment tools and pain management in shelters, were suggested by veterinarians at last year’s conference. Our presenters will also address some of the most important challenges in shelters today: infectious disease control, maximizing the veterinarian’s role in protecting health and welfare of shelter pets, and development of standard operating protocols that assure quality control and accountability in shelter care.


the Rundown:

October 29-30, 2011

Registration $225

$175 before September 15

Hilton University of Florida Conference Center, Gainesville, Florida

13 hours of advanced shelter medicine continuing education


New this year is a poster session called Frontiers in Shelter Medicine. Conference attendees are invited to present their findings on any topic relevant to shelter medicine, such as research updates, statistical reviews, new protocols, case presentations, practice pearls, and educational programs. Awards will be given to selected poster presenters who are currently enrolled in training programs, including undergraduate, graduate, and professional students, interns, and residents. This session will provide an opportunity for veterinarians and others in academia and from the sheltering world to share cutting edge information with each other.

We hope you’ll join us for this valuable program and take advantage of the opportunity to connect with others in the field.
