No Membership Fees - EVER!

This is a 21st century orgnization. Using techonology to decrease the adminstrative tasks to manage event data has eliminated the need for staffing. Let's be honest, what were you getting for that membership fee?

Code of Conduct

We have a very strong stance against violence and abuse. There is no tolerance for explicit and demeaning behavior at our events. 100% of the procedes from records certificates fund abused and injured animal well-being. Take a moment to visit our non-profit charity Power Against Violnce and Abuse.
