Rethinking the Cat: Humane Strategies Training Symposium


Sep 18, 2017

Do you want to boost cat adoptions, expand lifesaving programs for vulnerable kittens, enhance efforts to reunite lost cats or boost the impact of your Trap-Neuter-Return efforts? 

The Humane Society of the United States will host a “Rethinking the Cat” symposium for rescuers, shelter workers and volunteers, community (feral and stray) cat advocates, animal control officers, municipal officials, veterinarians and others. Join us for a day of learning, sharing and networking!

The free daylong training will feature two full-course tracks focusing on adoptable cats and community cats. Participants will learn about new strategies to boost shelter adoptions, keep cats in homes, protect vulnerable kittens, run a successful Trap-Neuter-Return program, collaborate to protect wildlife and more. There will be multiple sessions. View and download the agenda: 

A continental breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack will be provided at no cost to participants. This event is sponsored in conjunction with the Petco Foundation, Tomahawk Live Trap and Neighborhood Cats.
