    Great Culture, Great Results: Building Healthy Organizations from the Inside

    Emancipet New School

    August 30, 2018 (All day) to August 31, 2018 (All day)

    We believe that the internal culture of an organization has at least as much influence over success as the strategy and program. Unhealthy culture leads to disengaged staff, higher turnover, and unhappy clients – all of which make it difficult for an organization to stay on mission and accomplish goals. Conversely, healthy culture is the fuel in the fire of the mission and makes the impossible become possible (and more fun).

    Beyond Spay/Neuter: Why You Need a Low-Cost Healthy Pet Clinic & How to Build It

    Emancipet New School

    September 6, 2018 (All day) to September 7, 2018 (All day)

    In many communities the model of providing spay/neuter, possibly with an optional vaccine or two and a microchip included at the time of surgery, is no longer enough. In this seminar, Emancipet will provide participants with lessons learned, best practices and budgeting tools for adding and managing low-cost vet care to your organizations services. The inclusion of an affordable public “Healthy Pet” clinic component at many shelters and spay/neuter organizations would begin to close the gap in services to lower income and underserved families.

    Big Impact: Designing Programs, Services, and Messages for Social Change

    Emancipet New School

    September 27, 2018 (All day) to September 28, 2018 (All day)

    Sheltering, rescue, and low-cost veterinary organizations make a difference in the lives of animals every day. In the last few years, our focus has begun to expand from homeless or at-risk companion animals to be more inclusive of all the pets in our communities. We are pioneering programs, services, and messages for new populations, especially lower-income and underserved pet owners. We have the opportunity to create real and lasting social change — to completely transform our communities’ attitudes and behavior patterns when it comes to pet care and critical issues like spay/neuter.
