Calculating Your Humane Capacity

Your capacity is not just the number of cages you have. Capacity is your ability to provide humane care.

Whether trying to make estimates about staff hours needed, numbers of surgeries required, or the best fit number for adoption housing units, calculating capacity helps you plan and understand what’s needed as well as what’s possible. By knowing your humane capacity, and never exceeding it, you will be empowered to make good decisions for the animals in your care. Learn how to calculate your organization’s humane capacity in this 90-minute webinar.
