The Million Cat Challenge presents the second in a series of webinars about portals.
Portals have saved the lives of many shelter cats. Learn from two shelters who converted their cat cages into two-room compartments.
Kootenai Humane Society and Humane Society of Silicon Valley will explain:
• How they financed portal installation
• How they communicated the innovative upgrade to their staff, volunteers and community
• All the logistics of preparing for installation
• Everything that happened after they installed the portals. You’ll find out the impact on length of stay, budget and resources, adoptions and disease transmission.
Bring your questions! Anyone who works with cats in a sheltering environment will benefit from this 45-minute webinar.
The Million Cat Challenge is a shelter-based campaign to save the lives of 1 million cats in North America over the course of five years. The core strategy of the campaign is centered around five key initiatives that offer every shelter, in every community, practical choices to reduce euthanasia and increase live outcomes for shelter cats.
