Keynote: Becoming No-kill

Join attorney Ryan Clinton, founder of Fix Austin, as he kicks off the conference by sharing the obstacles, challenges, successes, and strategies that Austin faced on their journey to no-kill. At the end of this session, you will have a clear understanding of how and why no-kill success is possible anywhere and everywhere. Austin is the largest, truly no-kill city in America, but your community can save each and every animal, too! This presentation was recorded by Maddie's Fund® at the 2019 American Pets Alive! Conference.
