Florida Leaders in Lifesaving September Summit

September 20, 2021 - September 21, 2021



Let’s come together in-person for the first time (in a long time!) and build innovative, strategic plans to save the lives of pets in Florida shelters in 2022. We'll discuss hot topics facing animal welfare organizations in Florida and across the nation.

Attendees will gather to address the barriers facing organizations and design strategies to overcome obstacles together. The day will end by 5:00 pm so you can head home with new ideas, partnerships, and renewed energy for the coming year.
