Join the Maddie's Million Pet Challenge Team for the second of their 5 part series.
The Right Time has two dimensions: there’s the right time for an animal to come into the shelter (could be right now, at a scheduled time in the future, or maybe never!), and then there are right times once the animals admitted (holding periods and length of stay, for example).
Time is our most valuable resource, and our most interconnected. Whether we’re talking about the hours our shelter is open or the demands on our staff time, the system we build directly impacts the time an animal spends in our shelter. In this webinar, Drs. Cindi Delany and Kate Hurley will outline strategies for streamlining tasks, reducing length of stay, capturing lost resources, and making the most of the resources you have.
The webcast has been pre-approved for 1.0 Certified Animal Welfare Administrator continuing education credits by The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement and by the National Animal Care & Control Association.

@Kate Hurley DVM, MPVM, Maddie’s® Million Pet Challenge
Dr. Hurley is the founding director of the Koret Shelter Medicine Program and co-founder of the Million Cat Challenge, a shelter-based initiative to save the lives of one million more cats in five years. Over 1,500 shelters more than tripled that goal, between them saving over three million cats against their own baseline before joining the challenge.
Hurley’s research interests include welfare of confined dogs and cats, humane and effective strategies to manage community cats, and infectious disease prevention. She will always love shelter work because it has the potential to improve the lives of so many animals and the people who work so hard to care for them.
