This past week I attended the HSUS‘s Taking Action for Animals conference in Washington, D.C. This was my third year at TAFA, and each year is better than the last. It’s wonderful to be surrounded by other animal advocates for the weekend, learning about the issues and working hard to make the world a better place for animals. I especially had a wonderful time hanging out with my good friends Jaya, Gwen, and Judy.
