Description: Every Kitty, Every City FLORIDA (www.everykittyeverycity.org) is a ground-breaking conference that will gather more than 150 cat heroes, innovators, veterinarians, animal professionals and advocates to learn more about cats and how to protect them. Orlando is the first of only four cities that will host Every Kitty, Every City events in 2020.

Becky Robinson, the president and founder of Alley Cat Allies, will deliver the conference’s keynote presentation, focusing on defending cats from the fake news and bad science that attacks Trap-Neuter-Return and threatens cats’ lives in Florida and around the world.

The conference will also hold sessions that cover a range of cat-centric topics including:

  • How non-lethal programs continue to save lives with humane, effective approaches to community cats.
  • A presentation by Jennifer Conrad, DVM, founder and director of The Paw Project, on the success of the new declaw ban in New York state and the growing efforts to end feline declawing.
  • Non-surgical sterilization for cats, and answering the question of whether there is a birth control pill for cats.
  • Animal shelters today are nothing like they were in the past, where cats were routinely killed on a mass scale. Today, they are working with their local communities to save cats’ lives, as the entire approach to animal sheltering has been modernized and updated.
