Call Topic: Intake Diversion for Everyone!
With over 35% of pets coming into shelters labeled as owner surrender, ramping up on proactive strategies and resources in your organization can save more time, money, pets, and people! Originally launched in 2010 as one of the founding recommendations of making Austin, TX a no-kill city, the Positive Alternatives to Shelter Surrender program through Austin Pets Alive manages over 10,000 cases throughout Texas to help keep pets out of the shelter system. Lucy Fernandez, the PASS Program Manager, can guide you through the basics of getting started on community collaboration, data collection, and intake diversion.
Guest Speaker: @Lucy Fernandez, Positive Alternatives to Shelter Surrender Manager at Austin Pets Alive!
