      The Acatemy 2020

      The Acatemy 2020 is our second annual two-day celebration of cat rescue and the unsung heroes behind it.  We’re taking over an entire hotel to welcome the country's most proactive and influential figures in boots-on-the-ground cat rescue (that's you!), empowering them to step up their life-saving game like never before. Visit for the most details, features, and the full schedule.  We're riding the New Year vibes with programming that walks you through setting clear, ambitious goals for you and your rescue, then providing the skills to achieve them through:   4 rooms of cat-specific advanced and master class content from dozens of your rescue peers and industry leaders ​ building your life-saving network through designated social space with structured breakout sessions and informal activities ​ personal connections with event sponsors and commercial industry professionals   Stay tuned for our speaker roster, mini networking events, afterparty info, and tons more as details are confirmed.   Pet Policy Thanks to generous compromise from the venue's animal-loving staff, we'll be able to bring our travel-friendly cats along to the conference. The agreement is a "no paws on the ground" policy, which means your furry passenger must stay in their backpack, carrier, stroller, papoose, etc. while remaining on a harness and leash while in the conference area.  All cat-schleppers will be required to sign a waiver and code of conduct agreement at or prior to check in.  Hotel Embassy Suites Dulles North 44610 Waxpool Road  Dulles, Virginia 20147 (703) 723-5300 Click here to book your room with our conference group rate.
