Finding Forever Homes

Margaret Green Animal Rescue to Host ADCH 2015 Annual Conference

The 2015 event will be brought to Bournemouth for the first time by Margaret Green Animal Rescue. We are delighted to be organising the 2015 ADCH event during our 50th anniversary year. Each year the conference and exhibition is organised by a different ADCH charity member.

The Association of Dogs and Cats Homes promotes best practice in animal welfare for dogs and cats. Members include charities of all sizes, situated throughout the UK, Ireland, Isle of Man and the Channel Islands, dedicated to the rescuing of dogs and cats.

The conference and exhibition is a pivotal date in the association’s diary as it provides a platform to identify and disseminate information about the industry, raising the standards of animal welfare.

Expected to attract over 300 animal welfare professionals and more than 25 specialist exhibitors Matt Devereux, Trustee at Margaret Green Animal Rescue and ADCH Treasurer said: “The conference will bring together so many organisations and individuals engaged in the rescue and rehoming of domestic pets. This is an enormous opportunity for members and those who are not members of the ADCH to benefit.”

As part of the two day conference and exhibition programme, which will include many guest speakers, ADCH and Petplan Animal Health Insurance will also be hosting their annual Animal Charity Awards. During the evening, unsung animal charity and welfare heroes and organisations, who have been nominated by colleagues and members of the public, will be recognised for their outstanding contribution to the industry.

Pat Coyne, BH Live Director of Venues at the Bournemouth International Centre, added: “We are very pleased to be working with Margaret Green Animal Rescue, ADCH and Petplan to present their two day annual conference, exhibition and Animal Charity Awards ceremony next year. We look forward to welcoming delegates and exhibitors to the Bournemouth International Centre and giving them a great experience.”

From 3rd November 2014, nominations for the Petplan and ADCH Animal Charity Awards can be made at here. This is an opportunity for the public to say thank you to someone at their local animal charity that has gone above and beyond in their mission to improve animal well-being.
