Cile HollowayPresident's Message: THLN's 6th Annual Animal Advocacy Conference

What a success! THLN's 6th Annual Animal Advocacy Conference held at the Highland Dallas Hotel (September 5-6, 2014) was by all accounts our best conference to date. This year saw an increase in attendance by attorneys, animal control officers and animal care professionals, and we were delighted to be joined by several prosecutors from the Dallas County District Attorney's Office Animal Cruelty prosecution unit.

More good news: the "Tip to Tail" Gala and live auction, held at the conclusion of the conference on Saturday night, set a new record for fundraising for the event. Of course, the above could not have happened without our awesome sponsors, exhibitors, and volunteers.

On behalf of the THLN Board of Directors, we wish to extend our deepest gratitude to all who made this event possible. Your time and effort was truly appreciated, and we hope you will return to be with us again next year.

Thank you for supporting the conference, and doing so much to make Texas more humane!
