What if your city wanted to stop euthanizing community cats in the shelter, and decided to try something bold? And what if all the animal control officers, rescue groups and community members came together to make it work?
On Tuesday, April 7, 2015, at 9 PM Eastern Time, Wiley Stem III, Assistant City Manager of Waco, TX, will join Maddie's Institute® to share his community’s inspiring story of collaboration and lifesaving in Alternatives to Intake: When the Shelter Isn’t the Answer. The presentation itself will last around 20 minutes, with 40-45 minutes devoted to answering your questions.
This webcast is the first in a five-part series on the key initiatives of the Million Cat Challenge. "Alternatives to Intake” is about many things – programs that provide pet food or veterinary care to low income families, support for community members who bring litters of kittens to the shelter, and helping solve housing problems. And it’s also about what happened in Waco, when a dedicated group of civil servants and animal advocates said "no more” to the deaths of community cats in their shelter.
In this webcast, you’ll learn how they did it and how your community can do it, too.
