    Updated Monday, 11/8/21 at 3:00pm Pacific. Post now includes call recording, agenda and resources shared during the call.

    Agenda

    Breakout rooms

    1. Pet Support Services: Pet owners can access pet support services, including housing, medical and behavioral support, as well as food and supplies, to help keep the human-animal family together. Hosted By: Jill Henke, Director of Community Programming, Gateway Pet Guardians
    2. Return to Home: The organization operates a comprehensive lost pet reunification service to successfully get most roaming pets home without them having to enter the shelter system. Hosted by: Gina Knepp, National Shelter Engagement Director, Michelson Found Animals 
    3. Intake-To-Placement/ Foster Centric Pets physically entering the shelter have outcome pathways identified before or at the time of intake, so in-shelter length of stay is drastically reduced and the majority of pets who enter the shelter system are placed in foster homes within hours or days of arrival and foster pets are adopted directly from their foster homes. Hosted by: Kelly Duer, Foster Care Specialist, Maddie’s Fund 
    4. Supported Self-Rehoming: Pet owners who can no longer keep their pets are given the tools to safely and quickly rehome their own pets with ongoing support from shelter staff or volunteers. Lucy Fernandez, PASS Program Coordinator, Austin Pets Alive!
    5. Field Services and Public Safety: Animal control and field services protect public health and safety, enforce animal cruelty and neglect laws, and aim to address the root causes of animal problems. They provide support, information, access to care and resources to the community. Hosted by: Audra Michael CPM, Director, Pinal County Animal Care and Control

    I've updated this post with the recording of today's call, agenda and resources shared during the call. A majority of the call today was spent in breakout rooms which weren't recorded (Zoom doesn't let us do that yet) but you can see and hear everything that happened before we went to breakout rooms.

    @Bobby Mann started something fun on today's call:  he added a co-host. Today's co-host was @Donell Randolph from Oakland Animal Services, who did an awesome job! There will be more co-hosts on future calls, too. 

    Lastly, I've attached the chat notes. You'll want to scroll down to the Chat Session section to see the answers to Donell's Question of the Day: "If you could pick a NEW international holiday, what would it be and why?"​  How would YOU answer that?  Post your new international holiday in the replies. I think mine would have to be International Day of Play -- everyone is off work and gets to do whatever it is they love to do!
