Our Shared Mission

Adoption Options is a free, single-day education workshop tour that connects animal welfare professionals and volunteers with animal welfare experts and each other. Since its inception in 2004 it has held dozens of workshops in cities across the US and Canada. In the process, it has brought thousands of us together to address challenges head-on and further our shared mission of finding more homes for adoptable pets.

Learning Together

During the workshop, attendees will hear a series of presentations from industry experts on topics ranging from shelter medicine to pet enrichment to marketing tips. Past topics and speakers include:
