Trying to decrease your animals’ length of stay? Looking to improve the flow of animals through your shelter system? Fast Tracking is hands down the simplest thing you can do to get started.
Fast Tracking can benefit all shelter animals and helps maximize your organization’s life-saving capacity. Using time efficiently shrinks the daily in-shelter population even without reducing the number of animals served, allowing more resources (time, housing space, and attention) to be available for each animal present.
In this 90-minute webinar, you will find out specifically how other shelters have started and implemented simple Fast Tracking procedures. We’ll also discuss shelter models for systematic programs that have created flow-through happiness.
