Dreaming of a kinder world? Our Kind Critter Care Conference may be for you.
If you are reading this you no doubt care deeply about animals. And more than likely are looking to see how best you can advocate on their behalf. The next most frequently asked question we receive after, “Can you take my rooster?” is, “How can I start a sanctuary for farmed animals?” The answer to this latter question is as complex as it is challenging and is most certainly something that cannot be answered in a 5-minute telephone conversation or a quick FAQ response. It is for this reason we here at Edgar’s Mission will be hosting our popular Kind Critter Care Conference on Sunday 3rd of September 2017. Read more and see photos from our 2016 conference here and our 2015 conference here.
The aim of this day is multifold; to help people determine if running a farm sanctuary is for them, to provide an insight into the many complexities involved in running a farm sanctuary along with the many challenges it presents, to enhance the knowledge of those who currently care for farmed animals or those wishing to take on rescued farmed animals. Conference program will include topics such as; skills needed to start a sanctuary, sanctuary administration, animal care, husbandry and handling, dealing with burnout, farm/shelter design, emergency planning and more.
Speakers will include Edgar’s Mission Founder and Director, Pam Ahern, Farm Hand Manager, Meg Streiff and Operations Manager, Kyle Behrend. Guest presenter will be the Founder and Head Honcho at one of Australia’s first ever sanctuaries for rescued farmed animals, Bede Carmody. The indefatigable Bede runs A Poultry Place in Murrumbateman, just outside of Canberra and has been a TEDx presenter.
