    Hi All!
    I attended the Best Friends National Conference a few weeks ago and I also work at the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, UT.

    I loved hearing about the ideas for volunteer recruitment and engagement, but given that the Sanctuary is a tourist destination, I was wondering if any of you had new, innovative, ideas for how to keep volunteers engaged after they leave. We currently do email campaigns and social media engagements.

    I understand that the Sanctuary may be an anomaly due to our size and location, but was hoping there were some ideas out there!
    Any unique suggestions?

    What about hosting some sort of volunteer annual reunion or event each year?
