    Agenda

     Next Shelter and Rescue Support call will be on Monday, January 10, 2022

    Session One

    As we move to a community focused sheltering model, language is more important than ever. Join @Shakela Brown (Humane Rescue Alliance) and @Lily Amato (Atlanta Humane Society) as they discuss the difference between community engagement vs community outreach and how the language we use impacts our work.

    Session Two
    @Jessie Sullivan, Director of Adoption and Alternative Services, SICSA Pet Adoption and Wellness Center https://www.sicsa.org/

    @Josh Fiala, Pet Support Services Manager, Animal Rescue League of Iowa https://www.arl-iowa.org/

    @Brittany Lee, Foster Program Coordinator, Muddy Paws Rescue https://www.muddypawsrescue.org/

    @Katie Anderson, Community Support Manager, Gateway Pet Guardians https://gatewaypets.org/

    Thanks in part to funding from a Rachael Ray No-Kill Excellence grant, SICSA recently completed a Safe Pets Virtual Apprenticeship with 13 participating organizations from around the United States, including ARL of Iowa, Muddy Paws Rescue, and Gateway Pet Guardians. The apprenticeship provided the foundation needed for an animal shelter or rescue to launch a safety net-type program that affords temporary housing for pets whose owners are in crisis. Participants received sample program request forms and contracts, ideas for potential funders and partners, and example program budgets for grants. This session will provide an overview of the apprenticeship, the opportunity to hear directly from organizations that are moving forward to create similar programs for their communities, and the chance to dialogue about challenges and successes.
