Despite numerous challenges and obstacles, a group of Palestinian animal lovers was able to bring about much change for animals with minimal means. Through volunteerism and social media, the Palestinian Animal League transitioned from a grassroots initiative to an implementor of institutional programming, leveraging international support and solidarity in just a few short years. Come and learn of PAL’s experience, and leave inspired in furthering your own work.

Humane Society International’s Global Animal Issues Track is tailored for attendees outside the United States. These sessions offer solution-based presentations for issues often seen in countries lacking significant animal welfare infrastructure or awareness.
