Community Conversations hosted by Maddie's Fund 

12-30-2020 10:47 AM

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in early 2020, animal sheltering transformed overnight. Foster-based sheltering, home-based employees and volunteers, along with collaboration galvanized our communities.

The pandemic, along with social injustice, has motivated our industry to take a look at how we partner with our communities and confront our own biases. Shelter and rescue organizations across the country began talking on a weekly basis, offering support and innovative ideas to do things differently.

Maddie’s Fund hosts an hour-long Zoom call twice a week. While these calls started out as a response to COVID-19, it’s grown into so much more. These calls are a safe place to discuss uncomfortable topics, all while sharing a common goal of preserving the human-animal bond.

We invite you to join us in continuing these collaborative and enlightening conversations!
