We can’t wait to attend the Best Friends National Conference next month, July 7-9,  in Raleigh, NC! Will we see you there?

Maddie’s Fund® is a proud sponsor of the conference where you’ll learn how to make an impact from some of the top leaders in animal welfare — and all while having fun! Plus, you’ll make meaningful connections with fellow animal welfare volunteers and staff members from across the country.
