Drawing over 800 people from 44 states and 10 nations, last year’s No Kill Conference was the sold out, must attend event of the year. And we’re doing it again! July 13-14 in Washington, D.C.

In 2012, over one new community per week achieved a save rate of at least 90% and as high as 99%. The No Kill revolution is ON THE MARCH.

Join us as we celebrate that achievement and teach you how to do the same.

Speakers include Nathan Winograd, Michael Mountain, Ellen Jefferson, Mike Fry, Aimee Sadler, Ryan Clinton, Kerry Clair, and many more.

Workshops include No Kill 101, Adopting Your Way Out of Killing, Shelter Medicine for Non-Veterinarians, Using Technology to Save Lives, and much more.

Municipal shelter directors get in free. Rescue groups get a discount. Students are half price.

Join us in an unparalleled venue in the nation’s capital, just blocks from the White House and the National Mall, where the most successful shelter directors, shelter veterinarians, shelter reformers and animal law attorneys will help you create No Kill communities and use the legal system to save lives.

“The best conference I have ever attended.”




“All animal control agencies, non-profits, rescue groups and private citizen who are concerned about animal welfare in the shelter system should attend this conference, for all of them will learn how they can help to save lives of animals. I especially encourage animal control agencies to attend. I think many of them would be surprised at how much they could learn, and how they could have a positive impact on the lives of the animals in their care.”


“I expected to learn something new, but never anticipated walking away from a conference with such an incredible education. I expected it to be good, but it far exceeded my expectations.”


“I came a skeptic, and left a true believer.”
