Helping Pets by Supporting People: A Comprehensive Approach to Community Welfare

 

Webinar Speaker: Kim Wolf, Founder of Beyond Breed

In every community certain pets are more “at risk” for entering the shelter system and less likely to be adopted. But the adoptable animals are just one part of this story: for every pet that ends up in the shelter, there is a human component as well. This webinar takes a holistic approach to helping “at risk” adoptable animals by understanding the challenges and barriers facing people in our communities, especially those that threaten the human-animal bond. By moving our discussions beyond animal welfare to community welfare as a whole, we can implement a comprehensive approach that benefits people and pets alike.
