We are so excited that Andrea Rose from Living with Harmony will be attending the U.S. animal rights movement’s annual national conference called The Animal Rights National Conference.  It’s the world’s largest and longest-running animal rights event and was started in 1981.

The conference is July 30 – August 2 at the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center hotel outside of Washington, DC.

Why We’re Attending The Conference

Andrea is attending The Animal Rights National Conference to learn more about starting our animal sanctuary and to network with other animal activists. We’re also very interested in the over 100 educational sessions on animal advocacy, organizing and tactics.  We’re also interested in meeting the many speakers and talking with the over 90 exhibitors.

Please Talk With Us At The Conference

If you see Andrea the conference, please introduce yourself and say hi.  She will be attending sessions and during the exposition assisting at the Compassionate Circle and Healthy Chick booth on 7/31/15 through 8/2/15.

My name is Andrea Rose and I love animals and the planet. I have felt a connection to animals and nature for as long as I can remember. By spending time with animals, I’ve seen they have emotions, are self-aware and truly value their own lives. Because of this, I believe we have an obligation to respect, protect and care for them.

That connection has turned into my life’s mission of working tirelessly to help animals in need. I currently work as a veterinary technician where I provide care for animals at work and I care for many animals in our microsanctuary.

Because of my deep reverence for animals, I decided to help start Living With Harmony with John Pierre. In my work at the sanctuary, I help our residents, many of them with behavioral or special needs and that have been injured, abandoned or neglected, so they can live out their lives in peace and with joy and comfort. We all strive for a fulfilling life full of happiness and it’s my honor to provide this same opportunity to animals in need. In my work at the sanctuary, I also try to provide education and resources about companion animals and classroom pets and the issues they face.

In addition to working and caring for animals at the sanctuary, I use my passion and experience as an environmental educator to bring awareness to the benefits of sustainable and greener living. At Living with Harmony, we hope to also inspire people to create a positive change in their lives through their experience and connection to the community that we are trying to create.
