Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC) is honored to host Dr. Roger Haston for a special evening focused on animal welfare issues in NYC and beyond.

There is nothing simple about animal welfare in NYC. The good news is that ACC has made tremendous progress over the past several years both in placing animals that need homes as well as working to prevent animals from entering the shelter system in the first place.

But the future of animal welfare remains at a tipping point. Many of the messages and beliefs that have made us successful are starting to get in our way and are even polarizing us. Dr. Haston will challenge us to put in perspective the success of animal welfare today and consider the future of animal welfare through a whole new set of metrics.

Dr. Haston received a PhD in geophysics from the University of California Santa Barbara and an MBA in finance from Rice University. Prior to his time in animal welfare, he worked in the oil and gas industry and was an entrepreneur who started and owned several successful businesses. In 2012, Dr. Haston dedicated himself full-time to animal welfare and now is the Chief of Analytics at PetSmart Charities. He also serves on the boards of Emancipet, Animal Grant Makers, National Council on Pet Population and Shelter Animals Count.

This event is free and open to the public.  RSVP here.
