How many potential adopters are there in your community? The answer: probably more than the number of pets in your care. This workshop will help you determine how many pets you can potentially place, based on your population, and will offer a plan to move your adoption program into the stratosphere by re-examining the “facts” behind adoption.

TRAINING SHELTER DOGS
4 pm – 5: 30 pm
Sue Sternberg, Rondout Valley Animals for Adoption
Animal welfare professionals have a responsibility to provide true quality of life for each dog in their program. This workshop covers the importance of achieving and maintaining quality of life for dogs in shelters.

best paw forward. Shelter dogs will be used for demonstration.
