RESCUECON is a convention like no other, where the human-animal bond takes center stage. Through animal adoptions, visual and performing arts, hands-on workshops, talks by really amazing people, an artisan marketplace, and so much more, attendees will learn, play, explore, and, above all, refresh their relationship with animals...and each other. Our staff will be hosting an information booth and have several adoptable dogs at this year's event. You don't want to miss this!

The event will also help shed light on other animals in need in our community, including marine animals, wildlife, farmed animals, and others.
