    Product not yet rated Includes Credits Includes a Live Event on 10/02/2019 at 3:00 PM (EDT)

    The Wisconsin Humane Society today is the combination of five previously separate organizations. We’ll discuss why we think it is so important to consider combining organizations in this way; how we’ve done it; and what the impact has been.

In fact, especially in today’s world, our separateness has dramatic negative impact on our work, and places all our organizations at risk.

    We'll discuss how to meet the five freedoms of animal welfare for all animals in our care in affordable, doable ways, such as housing, in-housing enrichment, out-of-housing time, and length of stay. RACE-approved.

    Let's face it, shelter living is challenging. The shelter is filled with strange noises, weird smells, unfamiliar people, new food, and questionable roommates. On top of all that, we do not really have a way to explain to the animals that we have their best interests in mind, so we must show them. But what's the best way to do this? Come to this session to find out!

    We'll discuss how to meet the five freedoms of animal welfare for all animals in our care in affordable, doable ways, such as housing, in-housing enrichment, out-of-housing time, and certainly length of stay. You'll leave with actionable ideas to implement at your shelter, as well as long-term goals to improve the lives of all animals (and people!) in your shelter.  All staff (both medical and non) and especially shelter leaders with decision making capabilities will benefit from this webinar.
