NM Humane Conference

NM Humane Conference

The New Mexico Humane Conference is 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 encourage participants to both learn and collaborate with others in our field.

During this two-day conference, we’ll explore developments in animal welfare that will improve the work of everyone in attendance and the lives of the animals we serve.

Sponsor & Vendor Information

In 2017, NMHC drew over 175 animal welfare professionals from around New Mexico and surrounding states such as Texas and Arizona. Each year our conference grows, but this great event 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. .
