This is an archived session from 2019.
As shelters stop euthanizing for space and animal residents’ length of stay increases, it is imperative that organizations ensure the emotional stability of sheltered dogs. However, limited time and resources often prevent progressive shelters from feeling capable of implementing advanced training and enrichment programs. This session will help your organization develop and implement a volunteer program to address common behavior problems in the shelter through species-specific enrichment and positive reinforcement.
