How can we eliminate adoption barriers to get pets adopted?
While 70% of US households have a pet, only a fraction of those animals are adopted from animal shelters. This course looks at barriers that typically push potential adopters away from animal shelters and towards other options. In addition to examining adoption barriers and the misconceptions that help them persist, we look at strategies that can lower these hurdles, help more animals reach a live outcome and a happy life, and help animal shelters embrace and welcome all members of their community.
