Online Event – 6/18/24 – All Call: Building a Successful Dog Day Trip Program – California for All Animals

June 18 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM PDT

All Call

The All Call is a twice-monthly, California community call for animal well-being professionals that occurs on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday. The one-hour call is a dedicated space to share and learn from each other. Popular topics include initiatives that create a more inclusive culture for both staff and community, programs that keep pets with their people, industry trends, research studies, as well as the hard stuff, like what’s not working or what is particularly difficult during times of scarcity. The call is a mix of presentations, storytelling, open discussion, and Q&A time.

Join us on June 18 as Sarah Aguilar shares the success of Santa Barbara County Animal Services’ Dog Day Trip program, which has significantly boosted dog adoption rates and volunteer engagement. Sarah will share practical steps for replicating the initiative, emphasizing community collaboration, effective marketing, and streamlined coordination, and talk about what they learned along the way to over 300 day trips a month.

About the presenter

Following a life altering accident in 2011, Sarah Aguilar has dedicated her life to improving the lives of pets in every community she has been in.  As a team member for nonprofits and municipal agencies, Sarah has done it all from building a multi-state foster network for a small breed specific rescue to leading agencies with over 15,000 annual intakes.  Sarah has held leadership roles at some familiar agencies such as Austin Pets Alive, Greater Good Charities and Pima Animal Care, and is currently the Director at Santa Barbara County Animal Services.

The All Call is hosted by California for All co-leaders Allison Cardona and Nadia Oseguera and is enriched by rotating facilitators. You only need to register one time. Calls are sometimes recorded; recap emails with supplemental resources are sent post-call.
