Come learn with us

February 15, 2019

 

We are excited to announce HugABull's first ever speaker series! We are collaborating with some very smart people to address topics we know pet parents have questions about.

 

Sessions are held at River Market in New Westminster, which is supporting this initiative by providing the venue at no cost (thank you!!). It is close to SkyTrain and transit, and there is low-cost parking available. 

Registration is required but the session is by donation. We want this information to be accessible to as many as possible. Help us promote this inaugural event by sharing this blog post or links from our Facebook or Instagram feeds. You can also download our poster (PDF) here.
