 Is it okay to change what you plan to do before the actual challenge starts?

Disclaimer, I am new to the shelter world and working with animals.  I have been taking courses in Maddie's University and the Kitten Lady.  I have been learning so much.  After submitting my application I realized I may have a better approach to engaging my community.   My question is....Will the community see my incentives as genuine since they are associated with this challenge?  Should I be finding a way to incorporate them at other times of the year?  I want to keep my relation authentic and genuine always.

Hi Nicole,

Thanks for your question! I'm glad you asked. 

You're more than welcome to modify your Return to Home plans for the Challenge based on changing needs, assessments, etc. As long as you're implementing or expanding upon a Return to Home practice, you're fine to deviate from the application. You're not obligated to incorporate your initial ideas at a later time. 

We appreciate your openness and staying in the spirit of the Challenge!
