  • The 8 Components Every Animal Enrichment Program Should Have

    Product not yet rated Includes Credits Recorded On: 02/07/2018

    Learn how a strong shelter enrichment program will help give your animals more freedom from discomfort, freedom to express normal behavior and freedom from fear and distress.

    A strong shelter enrichment program will help give your animals more freedom from discomfort, freedom to express normal behavior and freedom from fear and distress. The Association recruited subject matter experts on animal behavior to develop a best practices document on animal enrichment in shelters. This webinar is the first in a four-part series to dig into that document and answer your questions.

    Participants will walk away understanding:

    • What animal enrichment is and its limitations
    • Why enrichment is important
    • How enrichment helps increase adoptions and save lives
    • The distinction between enrichment and behavior modification

    The 4-part series will benefit any animal shelter professional interested in understanding how enrichment can enhance and maintain behavioral health.

    Our partner, Idealware, offers a three-part series of 90-minute recordings.

    Imagine doing your job without a computer or any software. Ridiculous, right? Yet many funders overlook technology. The result is a nonprofit sector that is slowed down by outdated and ineffective tools. But there’s hope. Funders aren’t against technology—they just want to know that investing in your technology needs will lead to better outcomes. That’s why we’re offering this three-part course. We want to show you how to convince funders that your tech projects matter so that you have the tools you need to do your best work.

    During this course, you’ll hear directly from funders about what they look for in a technology proposal and what it takes to make your technology needs stand out. We’ll start out by helping you set the stage for funding your project by zeroing in on your potential funders. Then you’ll get the chance to ask our panel of grantmakers your own questions during a moderated discussion. And we’ll wrap up by talking about the practical steps for moving forward and getting the funding you deserve, including how to contextualize your project to show how important it is to your organization, how to budget for future technology and additional details that go into writing a strong proposal.
