    I'm a newbie volunteer but our shelter is full to the brim!  What are your best triage strategies?  How do we keep adoptions going?  Where are the rescues we should coordinate with?  Is it acceptable to close our shelter for further intake?  

    Give me the quick and dirty.  Learning on the fly here.  Thank you so much!

    Here is an awesome resource from HASS (clickable link) on Intake to Placement strategies. 

    Have a great week!
