Neonatal kittens are the most euthanized animals in shelters today and therefore have become the focus of shelters looking to increase their live release rates. In 2017, the Animal Welfare League of Arlington (VA) took a storage closet, $10K, and one staff person and created an in-house kitten nursery that increased its intake of kittens by 400% while maintaining a live release rate of 92%. 

Your organization can learn from AWLA's success. Learn how they created the nursey, engage and support a specialized foster group, and use social media to take the pressure off of their staff.

This webinar recording is part of the new Innovation Bank. The Innovation Bank is a collection of bright ideas, innovative programs, and research that your organization can use for inspiration. Recorded sessions will be added to the series throughout Fall 2020.
