So you’re designing a new facility – who’s the first person you consult? An architect? Designer? Contractor? What about your shelter medicine expert?
Appropriate housing, capacity considerations, isolation, and traffic flow all play a huge role in preserving animal health and welfare. So why wait until after the plans are set to consider these critical factors? Learn what you need to know about healthy shelter design and layout before and during your consultation with your construction crew.
This webinar will benefit anyone involved in shelter medicine and shelter construction planning.
