Petfood Forum Names Jackson Galaxy 2015 Conference Keynote Speaker
Jackson Galaxy, star of Animal Planet's My Cat From Hell, will be the opening keynote speaker at the 23rd-annual Petfood Forum 2015, which will be held April 27-29 in Kansas City, Mo. Galaxy, who focuses on saving cats from rescue shelters, will kick off the conference on April 28.
In his keynote, Galaxy will describe inspirations for his career, lessons he's learned from working with cats and their owners, and why his primary goal is to help save 4 million animals that die in shelters each year, working through this Team Cat Mojo campaign and Jackson Galaxy Foundation.
The Flying Houndz Frizbee Trick Dog Show, which includes rescue dogs, will be the conference's closing keynote on April 29. The owners of the group, Jeff and Misty Wright, will explain how they started and why they work with rescue dogs and promote responsible pet ownership.
“Our team really wanted to do something fun and different for the audience this year, especially with the relocation to Kansas City and so many other new features and activities being added to the event,” said Debbie Phillips Donaldson, editor in chief of Petfood Industry.
“Selecting someone with a recognizable name in the industry, like Jackson Galaxy, has broad appeal and his focus on saving pets from shelters is in line with our own philosophies," she says. "We want to continue to support the causes that help save the lives of pets by providing them with a platform to speak, perform and have increased visibility on which they can grow.”
