Central New York Shelter Forum is back! Check out the 2018-2019 schedule below.

Hello Shelties!

Welcome to a new and exciting year of CNY Shelter Forum with your Maddie’s Shelter Medicine Team at Cornell! We have a change in the day that Shelter Forum occurs this year. Shelter Forum will now be on the first Tuesday of the month! Same time – 5:30pm to 7:30pm, and same place – Conference Room 1 at the Animal Health Diagnostic Center. 

Our Central New York Shelter Forum brings together local animal shelter staff and volunteers to discuss a broad range of topics relevant to shelter medicine and animal care. Led by our staff program’s staff, we offer advice and information and hold roundtable discussions on a new topic each month.

Here is a list of our 2018-2019 CNY Shelter Forum schedule of presentations. As always, if there is a specific topic you would like covered or you have any ideas for future topics, please email vickiweber2015@gmail.com. See you at forum!
