Webinar: Small Changes, Big Results for Cats

March 16, 2017

Does the thought of making effective changes in how your shelter handles cats seem overwhelming? Maybe it’s time to think small.

When the open admission MSPCA made one seemingly small, easy-to-implement change, the positive impacts on intake and adoptions were immediate. What’s more, the change helped staff and volunteers innovate new adoption promotions and develop creative solutions to finding homes for cats with the most challenging litterbox and behavior issues.

At an upcoming free Million Cat Challenge webinar, Director Mike Keiley of the Noble Family Animal Care and Adoption Center MSPCA at Nevins Farm and Bryn Conklin Rogers, program manager for the MSPCA Boston Adoption Center, will share:

  • How stopping weekend intake led to huge improvements for cats
  • How resources for tough problems opened up thanks to small changes
  • How to handle communication around change, both internally and with the public
  • Getting staff buy-in and dealing with resistance
  • What it was like before and after the change
  • How other shelters can make small changes that can have big impact

Please join us on Thursday, March 30, at noon Pacific/1 PM Mountain/2 PM Central/3 PM Eastern for Small Changes, Big Results for Cats.
