Cats continue to face disproportionate challenges in animal shelters and have a 70% chance of euthanasia in the average California Shelter. However, change is on the horizon. Last Tuesday, June 11th, Found Animals and Orange County Animal Care had the wonderful opportunity to host a unique Speakers Forum Event called “Managing the Cat Crisis.”
We were excited to have nationally recognized animal care experts including Jon Cicirelli and Dr. Kate Hurley speak about how to understand the reasons behind these staggering numbers and what alternative cat programs and shelter management techniques can be utilized to make a difference.
The event was free to attend and was presented to local animal control programs including Orange County Shelters, Long Beach Animal Control and SEACCA Animal Shelter. All in attendance enjoyed a tasty sliders bar at the DoubleTree hotel in Anaheim and were placed in a drawing sponsored by our Found Animals Microchip team in which one lucky shelter received an Xtend Max Universal Wand Scanner.
We hope to continue to present successful alternatives to the adversities facing our shelter pets. Visit our resources section for downloadable pdf’s of past presentations.
