ADCH attends Animal Welfare Conference in Northern Ireland

ADCH Chair, Giles Webber, and Executive Director, Rebecca Cooper, travelled to Northern Ireland earlier this week for an animal welfare conference organised by ADCH members Causeway Coast Dog Rescue.

The conference provided a platform for various organisations to share their experiences and insights, fostering collaboration and collective learning within the sector. 

Giles Webber addressed the audience on the advantages of working ‘together for Dogs and Cats’ and sharing knowledge and experience among peers, highlighting these as key factors in ADCH membership. His speech unveiled ADCH’s newly launched strategy, set to commence in 2024. 

The event was well-attended by several ADCH members, including Dogs Trust Ireland, Madra, Battersea, Kennel Club, Greyhound Rescue Wales and Pets Foundation.  

“We were delighted to join our fellow ADCH members and colleagues at this inspiring conference,” remarked Rebecca Cooper.

Events like these are crucial for advancing our collective mission of improving animal welfare across the board.” 

The day-long conference concluded positively, with participants expressing enthusiasm for future collaborations and initiatives aimed at furthering the welfare of animals in need. Tara Cunningham of Causeway Coast Dog Rescue received special recognition for her outstanding efforts in organising the event. 

Plans are already underway for a follow-up conference scheduled for October 2025, promising another opportunity for stakeholders to come together and drive positive change in animal rescue and welfare. For updates and details on future events, please visit Causeway Coast Dog Rescue’s website.
