About this Event

Making A Difference Now (MADN) is taking our annual conference on the road! With funding from Maddie's Fund, MADN is working with local organizations to design a tailored agenda of training sessions presented by animal welfare professionals and meet and greets for decision makers, community members and community media to learn more about the local needs of animals and rescuers. Join us for a day of learning and networking - including free breakfast and lunch!

If your organization is interested in hosting a future one-day event please email us at madnky@gmail.com

The agenda for the Somerset event will include:

  • Welcome breakfast for community members, officials, attendees, and media (donuts generously provided by Amon's Bakery, Somerset)
  • KY Animal Control Laws
  • KY Shelter Survey Update
  • Adoptable Shelter Pets: How to Enrich the Lives of Shelter Animals
  • Working Lunch: Saving the Lives of Community Cats: Return to Field and Trap-Neuter-Return (lunch generously provided by Buffalo Wings & Rings, Somerset )
  • Success on a Small Budget: Building Strong Community Support
  • Access to Veterinary Care - A National Family Crisis
  • Compassion Fatigue
  • Workshop Evaluation and Prize Drawings

If you plan to come to the coffee/meet and greet AND the training, please register for the full day ticket. If you plan to come to the coffee/meet and greet ONLY and not stay for the training, please register for the meet and greet ONLY ticket.

We hope you will join us for this fun and informative event!
