Thanks to our conference sponsors!
Our conference would not have been possible without the assistance of our sponsors. They not only provided financial assistance but also sent representatives and materials for door prizes.
The ASPCA sent Michael Barrett, Vice President of Grants, who presented a very well received session on seeking grant funding. Lisa Star, also from ASPCA, offered an informative session on hoarding. Also when the outgoing CEO Ed Sayres, left the ASPCA, he chose some state groups to receive a special grant and FOHO WV was one of those recipients. The ASPCA has been amazingly generous with us financially. We could not have had this event without their tremendous financial support.
HSUS provided funding for our law books, which were given out at the conference to attendees.
In addition, HSUS sent Tara Loller, Puppy Mill Implementation Coordinator, to present a session on West
Virginia’s new puppy mill law. She was assisted by the WV Director for HSUS, Summer Wyatt.
Denise Bash, founder of Animal Lifeline another sponsor, also represented conference sponsor Petfinder
with many items to stuff in attendee’s bags. These national groups are helping us at the state level. Your donation to them is coming back in part to West Virginia through assisting us with animal welfare issues and events like our conference.
