Meet & Greet Best Practices

  • 1.  Meet & Greet Best Practices

    Posted 19 days ago
    Hi everyone- wondering who has any SOPs for adoption meet and greets you find useful. If the pet owner is bringing their own pet to meet a potential adoptee, does your staff handle the privately owned dog or does the owner? Do you have rules about the privately-owned dog's behavior before proceeding? What are the steps you take in the room/ yard for the meet and greet?

    Looking to improve our process. Thanks!

    Hi, I am working on creating some of these documents for my organization, Humane Society of Pinellas.  I would be happy to share them with you!  They are based on documents shared with me from Austin Pets Alive!.  My email is scohen@humanepinellas.org.

    Here is what I have put together so far, again, a lot of it is based off resources from Austin Pets Alive!.  I am still working on putting together a waiver for owners to sign when they bring their dog on site and would love references for this.
