In many cases, simply knowing that help is available and the shelter can take the cat in the near future is enough to allow the community member to opt for an appointment down the road, when his or her cat can be better cared-for by the shelter. In some cases, supportive management may buy the owner enough breathing room that the cat ends up being able to remain in the current home after all.
On Tuesday, April 14, 2015, at 9 PM Eastern Time, two shelter leaders who have had great success in managed admission approaches, Barbara Carr, Executive Director of the SPCA Serving Erie County, NY, and Kathie Johnson, Senior Operations Manager of the Animal Humane Society in Minneapolis, MN, will join Maddie's Institute® to share what they’ve learned, including what’s worked and what hasn’t. Managed Admission: Giving Shelter Cats Their Best Chance at a Great Outcome presentation will last around 20 minutes, with 40-45 minutes devoted to answering your questions.
This webcast is the second in a five-part series on the key initiatives of the Million Cat Challenge. Its focus will be on providing information and encouragement for establishing a waiting list for cats entering the shelter in order to reduce length of stay, illness and stress due to overcrowding, as well as increase adoptions.
