What is the Pet Rescue Resource?

The Pet Rescue Resource’s primary aim is to help improve the prospects of pets in a shelter or rescue environment by shortening the length of stay for each pet while increasing adoption and retention rates. As a secondary mission, it will also help and support adopters, foster home networks, and professional pet trainers and care providers. Recognizing that many hard working volunteers and others who support pet rescue on a daily basis may have minimal experience in animal training, the Pet Rescue Resource Toolkit has been designed specifically so it can be implemented by a cross section of pet professionals, volunteers, pet parents and pet hobbyists. This Behavior and Welfare Toolkit will consist of a number of comprehensive programs comprising a collection of articles, training plans, and videos across a broad range of topics. It will also include modules that focus on topics of a smaller scope. Each of the resources provided in the Toolkit are designed to guide and support programs for the management, behavior modification, training, and enrichment of animals in shelters and foster homes. As a PPG developed concept, the Pet Rescue Resource reflects our organization’s mission to provide the greatest value, highest quality, state-of-the-art, force-free, science-based education on the training, behavior consulting, and care of companion animals.

The Summit Focus is Rescue and Shelter Focused, Collaborative Care and Enrichment Creating Partnerships for Positive Results!

2 Days, each featuring 4 live webinars.  8 exceptional educational experiences!
