    Please note: All views expressed on Community Conversations calls are not necessarily endorsed by Maddie’s Fund.

    Please join us during the Shelter and Rescue Support Roundup call on Monday, 6/13/22 at 8am Pacific for a series of truly collaborative conversations.
    After introductions and updates from all of our attendees, we will be hosting breakout rooms on the following topics. Please bring your ideas, questions, challenges, successes, and more! We can't wait to see you there.
    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

    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: Bobby Mann, Chief Programs Officer, Humane Rescue Alliance

    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

    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. 
    Hosted by: Laura Van Wagner, Account Manager, Home to Home, and Lucy Fernandez, PASS Program Coordinator, Austin Pets Alive!

    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: Sara Muriello, Vice President of Programs and Services, Pasadena Humane

    We can't wait to see you there!

    Thanks to everyone who joined today's call and participated in the break out rooms! The recording is now available to watch on demand. You'll notice a much shorter recording than normal since the bulk of the call took place in break out rooms and those sessions were not recorded. Be sure to complete this form if you attended or watched on demand to enter to win a grant
