2016 Conference held April 23 in Charleston with 90 people in attendance.  Our first trip south for our FOHO WV Conference was a huge success.  We had 27 counties represented.

There were a variety of speakers on a wide range of animal welfare topics. 

We would like to thank our sponsors for the 2016 conference.   We could not hold these conferences without the support of our sponsors.  This year we would like to thank ASPCA, HSUS, and Grey2KUSA for their support.
