So you have decided a transport is right for your organization and community – now what? Where do you start? How do you get there and which animals will you choose?
This webinar will explain how to implement the newly revised Companion Animal Transport Best Practices Document at your organization. Transport provides a means of addressing animal population imbalance across the country and this webinar will share some of the key areas to consider when establishing a program.
This is the second session in a new 4-part updated Best Practices Webinar Series: Companion Animal Transport (2019), based on the recently revised Best Practices document.
