International conference set to push companion
animal welfare ‘one step further’

THIS YEAR’S International Companion Animal Welfare Conference (ICAWC) aims to take delegates ‘One Step Further’ along the road to achieve their animal welfare aims.

ICAWC is organised by the NCDL, the UK’s largest welfare charity dedicated to rehoming dogs and preventing strays, and North Shore Animal League International - an international organisation dedicated to saving animals’ lives.


ICAWC was set up to share information and advice to those wanting to improve the lives of pet animals. It has grown into a significant event in the animal welfare calendar, and attracts hundreds of delegates from all over the world. This years event takes place at the Pyramida Hotel, Prague on November 15-16.

One of the themes at ICAWC 2002 will be the most effective methods of fundraising for animal shelters. Experts from organisations such as the NCDL, North Shore Animal League International and Civil Society Development Foundation Hungary, will share their knowledge and experience in fundraising from individuals and organisations.

Education will also play a large part at the conference. Local Prague schoolchildren will present the findings of their project on animal welfare in the classroom.

Other areas to be covered by expert speakers include: running a shelter as a business, dog behaviour and environment enrichment, common ailments in dogs and cats plus neuter and release techniques.

Robin Sieger, a world renowned motivational speaker, will start the conference with what promises to be a dynamic presentation on achieving excellence.


Robin is the author of Natural Born Winners - a book which has been acknowledged as a blueprint for personal and professional success, translated into 11 languages and sold in over 41 countries.

Delegates need to book by completing and returning a registration form.
