Co-Sheltering Conference

My Dog Is My Home is a national nonprofit in the U.S. dedicated to expanding access to shelter for individuals experiencing homelessness with their companion animals.  Next month, we are hosting the Third Annual Co-Sheltering Conference, which will be held virtually on March 21-23, 2023. We have student rates, conference scholarships, and bundled ticket discounts available.

This year’s theme is “Changing Systems. Changing Lives. Creating a world with equitable access to homes for people and their animals.” At the conference, you’ll hear inspirational stories of how companion animals provide safety & comfort and improve the physical & emotional health of people experiencing homelessness. You will also network with homeless services providers, animal welfare groups, and other stakeholders from different fields to drive system changes for equitable and accessible housing for people and their animals. Through our curated program of speakers and workshops, organizations across disciplines will acquire tools and build their capacity to serve human-animal families. Some of our exciting speakers include: Ann Oliva (CEO of the National Alliance to End Homelessness) | Nathaniel Fields (CEO of Urban Resource Institute) | Haben Girma (Disability Rights Lawyer & President Obama White House Champion of Change) | Heidi Marston (PetSmart Charities) | Dr. Jill Pable (Design Resources for Homelessness) | Dr. Rebecca Stuntebeck (UC Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program) | Marilou Chanrasmi (CARE) | Kerry Morrison (Heart Forward LA) | Dr. Janet Hoy Gerlach (University of Toledo) | Congressman Jason Crow (US House of Representatives, CO-06)...and more!

My Dog Is My Home’s conference encourages participants of all backgrounds. If any students, faculty, or staff would like to attend, they may find more information and register on our website. Most of the sessions will be recorded. Please feel free to share this invitation and flyer with any who could benefit from attending.

We’d be honored to have your support for this one-of-a-kind virtual event.
