About This Session: The Future of Animal Welfare: Positive Disruption Will Save More Lives
@Sheila Kouhkan, Chief Engagement Officer for Companions and Animals for Reform and Equity (CARE), will discuss how being a Disruptor is conducive to creating more inclusive, lifesaving programs. Together, we will examine the positive impact of important Disruptors throughout history and the related social changes that influence our lives today. We will apply a Disruptor approach to Animal Welfare by reviewing practical steps for assessing current programs and identifying opportunities for programmatic changes to support keeping companion pets with their families and finding loving homes for more adoptable pets. We’ll reimagine how animal "well-being" versus "welfare" could be a positive disruption for the future.
