Helping Lost Pets Find Their People

Standley 2

Getting pets back home where they belong is perhaps the most important yet overlooked aspect of animal sheltering. The intense focus on adoption often overshadows the criticality and benefits of reunification. Attendees will learn about calculating return to owner data and monitoring program success while also exploring a host of unique, affordable, and effective ways to find missing pet owners. Increasing return to owner rates not only feels good, there are quantifiable cost savings, improved staff morale, and endless opportunities to build community trust.
