It’s estimated that nearly three-quarters of cats who enter our nation’s animal shelters each year don’t make it out alive. Most are free-roaming “community cats,” many of whom are not suitable for adoption into homes. This ineffective, costly and inhumane approach to managing community cats is steadily being replaced with progressive community cat programs (CCPs). These shelter-based programs are effective at reducing the numbers of these cats, reducing shelter admissions and shelter deaths, saving taxpayers money and providing a public health benefit to the community. Join Desiree and Emily of Best Friends Animal Society to learn more about these programs and how you can be involved in your own community!

Speakers: 
Emily Prusnek, No More Homeless Pets Network Specialist
Desiree Triste-Aragon, Community Cats Project Supervisor

The presentation is roughly 45 minutes with 15+ minutes for questions.
