Approximately 28% of animals entering animal shelters in the Northern Tier are considered “owner surrenders.” Under the best of circumstances, a shelter is more stressful than a home, and risks for pets are compounded by staffing shortages, infectious diseases, and separation from family. What if shelters could provide families with the resources and support needed to rehome community pets and ultimately keep them from entering a shelter?
During this session, we will discuss how to increase a shelter’s ability to support pets in the community and reduce intake by integrating the rehoming platform Home-to-Home and what it looks like when we start to focus on shelter admission as a pathway for only those animals without other options.
