Association of dogs’ and cats’ homes invites
breed rescues to attend conference


The Association of Dogs’ and Cats’ Homes (ADCH) is holding its annual conference on 16th and 17th April 2008 in Cheltenham. The conference aims to educate and inform delegates on a broad range of topics.

It is also a chance for Breed Rescues to learn about the benefits of membership of the Association as well as giving the opportunity to network and discuss ideas with other delegates.

The ADCH is a dog and cat welfare organisation which provides a communication link between charities, and the conference is open to all Breed Rescue Societies. The conference runs over two days and includes speakers from the Dogs Trust and Wood Green Animal Shelters, with discussions ranging from customer interaction to canine risk assessment. The Kennel Club is a member of the ADCH and regularly attends conferences.

Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary said, “We really hope breed rescues will attend the conference, as it provides a great opportunity for meeting other people within animal welfare, and gives rescue charities the chance to learn about a number of relevant subjects.”

Petlog will have a trade stand at the conference and will be on hand to answer any questions relating to microchipping. To find out more about the conference and to view the full schedule, please go to www.adch.org.uk.
