The annual Association of Dogs and Cats Homes conference is to take place in the Irish capital this year, thanks to the support of Dublin SPCA.
The event, held on the 22nd and 23rd of April at University College Dublin includes topics such as customer care, animal behaviour, the business of running a shelter and updates on animal welfare legislation. The full four-page program can be found here (pdf); the eagle-eyed will notice that Dogs Trust Chief Executive Clarissa Baldwin will chair proceedings.
Transport and travel should be easy enough from the UK, given regular cheap flight deals to the Republic of Ireland, and the delegate rate is just €50.00 per person. This covers full conference registration including the evening function on the 22nd April.
There's even a Facebook Event set up so that you can see who else is going and chat about what's happening before, during and after the conference.
