HEALING ANIMALS ORGANISATION AT THE
INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF ANIMAL WELFARE GREECE
I felt very privileged to be asked to be a guest speaker at the International Conference of Animal Welfare. Organised by the Dogs Trust this event is in it’s fourteenth year, and was held in Athens. My one hour lecture was about who is healing the animal carer and techniques how to maintain health. It was wonderful to share with the delegates how The Healing Animals Organisation is helping animal charities all over the world with rehabilitation and healing techniques for animals and their carers.
I met animal charities delegates from Romania, Poland, India, Greece, Austria, UK, Russia, and all parts of the globe. From chief executives, to centre managers and animal care staff. It was an honour to share the stage with speakers such as TV Vet Luke Gamble, Carolyn Menteith and Steve Goward behaviourists, Sarah Fisher Tellington Touch, Dr Guest who has pioneered a way in which dogs can detect cancer by sniffing a patient’s body. Trevor Cooper, a solicitor from the Dogs Trust who facilitated a wonderful workshop entitled Can Model Laws Work where we worked in discussion groups on how we could improve current Animal Welfare Acts through the world. Another workshop was entitled - Fundraising in a competitive world. A total of ten vets were present at the conference including Jeff Young from the USA who was a key speaker on alternatives to opening a shelter. He’s a remarkable vet investing his own money in neutering and spay clinics in poorer parts of Mexico. Jeff has invited the Healing Animals Organisation to work with his team of vets in Mexico. I will email you when we have some dates in place.
