The Minnesota Animal Welfare Conference is an annual educational and networking opportunity for animal welfare professionals. The Tri-County Humane Society volunteers to organize this conference because we believe that providing affordable opportunities for continued education and networking among the various animal groups is key to making Minnesota a more humane community.
