Creating a Network of Care Options for Cats
Recorded On: 03/23/2020
The animal welfare field has established effective models for providing high-volume spay/neuter, but many communities still face barriers to accessing these and other services for cats. What if we invested upfront in common-sense solutions to target this problem at its source? Can we disrupt the status quo for cats and transform our organizations and communities?
Learn about a project called Metro Denver CAT, which was created to answer these questions. The program uses a collaborative system, bridging gaps in our community and creating a network of care options for cats. This community outreach program connect residents to services, filling in gaps where needed. Anna Murrin, project manager at Metro Denver CAT, will share what her team has learned by implementing a structured, methodical community-based cat project, and discuss ideas to consider at your organization.
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.
