Associated with  Animal Welfare Professionals

A first-of-its-kind conference focused on equity + access within social services for people and their companion animals experiencing homelessness.

Hear from experts in the fields of emergency housing, social services, and animal welfare on everything from supporting the human-animal bond and advocacy for low-barrier policies to animal health and safety and building community partnerships. Enjoy curated storytelling segments, interactive activities, and loads of giveaways.


Let’s build a strong network of game-changers together. This three-day event promises to educate, entertain and engage as we pursue equitable access to home for all people and all families with animals in our respective communities across the globe. Connect and be inspired by others immersed in this very special line of work.


The foundation of co-sheltering is inclusivity, which means this conference invites any and all, including those involved in social services, homeless services, and animal welfare; curious members of the public; students in the fields of veterinary medicine, social work, public administration, and more!
