Free Workshops for Animal Welfare Organizations!
Virtual Crisis Response Workshop
Upcoming Session: May 4, 2021
Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Helen Woodward Animal Center quickly modified pet adoption services and programs to remain on the front lines of animal welfare. Join us for a live, virtual conference on Tuesday, May 4 at 9 a.m. PST where our team will share what we learned from the crisis and how animal rescue organizations around the country and world can use that knowledge to continue their mission of helping orphan pets in need.
This comprehensive workshop will cover new best practices when it comes to adoptions, finances, humane education, pet food assistance programs and human resources. You will also learn how to effectively communicate your needs and share inspiring messages with your supporters and the public during a time of crisis. See the workshop schedule here.
