Despite shared goals of increasing adoptions and decreasing euthanasia rates, shelters and rescue groups sometimes have strained relationships. In this webinar, we discuss concerns that might lead to mistrust and ways we can move forward in healthy and productive partnerships. Restoring the relationship between shelters and rescue groups is one of the easiest ways we can ensure that more animals leave the shelter system and are placed into good homes!
