With shelter dog populations returning to pre-pandemic levels, outcomes slowing, transport destinations drying up, and historic levels of staffing turnover, shelters are struggling with medium and large dogs. Everybody is asking, “What do we do?”
Held online March 29-30, 2022, the conference will cover how to help staff at all levels better manage big dog populations, maximize organizational efficiencies, utilize technologies, build proven programs, and implement transparent, effective policies based on five components of big dog management: public safety, intake management, live outcomes, humane care, and cost-efficiency.
We’re bringing the nation’s top experts together – among them veterinarians, epidemiologists, veterinary behaviorists, shelter directors, trainers, and national leaders – to give you two days of highly usable programs that don’t require special skills or breaking the bank to make positive changes.
This free, virtual conference opportunity is made possible by support from Maddie’s Fund® and organized by the Maddie’s® Million Pet Challenge and Human Animal Support Services.
