Because Not Feeling Alone Makes this Crisis a lot Easier.

March 28th, 2020

As this global pandemic worsens, what will happen to homeless pets and those entering our shelters? You're invited to an online summit to work towards a preparedness plan we can all utilize. We are creating communities who care, leaders who understand the importance of relationships between pets and people, and solutions to maintain lifesaving across the nation. The AmPA! summit offers shelters and rescues a chance to join in breakout roundtables, work with experts, and engage with leaders from communities who have been hit the hardest by this disease.

AmPA! Shelter and Rescue Preparedness Summit a national online conference to prepare for the next phase of animal sheltering through the COVID-19 pandemic.

You'll hear from Dr. Ellen Jefferson and the instructors from Maddie's Lifesaving Academy, as well as other industry leaders, and others. But more importantly, you'll be able to engage face to face (digitally!) with people like you. Because not feeling alone makes this crisis a lot easier. This conference is about you, your work, your organization, your community, your animals. It happens live, just like an in-person summit.

Practice Social Distancing:

Face to face, but in video conference format, join us for the first-ever AmPA! COVID-19 Summit for developing plans for shelters through this pandemic. The conference runs LIVE for two hours on April 3, 2020.

How it works:

We will start together and end together. You'll engage in real-time conversations with other attendees from around the nation in small groups of 5-10 people, in addition to bigger group discussions.

What you'll take away:

  • Access to a community of people who are in the same situation as you
  • An understanding of how to prepare for the future

Bring your boss, your coworkers, and your direct reports, great teams know how to be prepared.
