Since 2005, the New Mexico Humane Conference has been the Southwest’s forum for educational and networking opportunities in animal welfare. Our comprehensive sessions are open to animal welfare professionals, animal control officers, veterinarians, veterinary technicians, animal rescue groups, animal trainers and anyone interested in learning more about animal welfare. Our wide range of engaging topics encourages participants to both learn and collaborate with others in our field.

During this 2-day conference, we’ll explore developments in animal welfare that will improve our work and the lives of the animals we serve. Our 2018 Keynote Speaker, Myles Chadwick, Vice President, Emancipet New School, will speak on “Emerging Leadership – Investing in the Next Social Change Makers”

Sponsor & Vendor Information

The Humane Conference needs your support.

In 2017, NMHC drew over 200 animal welfare professionals from around New Mexico and from Arizona, Texas, Colorado and California. Each year, our conference grows–we are working to make 2018 even bigger and better–but our conference cannot happen without the generous support of our sponsors. Sponsorship is available at many different levels and every sponsorship is vital to our conference’s success!  Sponsorship is also the best way to share information about your organization, products or services with passionate animal welfare workers and leaders for the Southwest region. Your company will be recognized on conference materials, our website and through social media and, best of all, through networking opportunities with our attendees. .
