Dear Animal Advocate,
Want to know how to raise money to save the lives of treatable dogs and cats or how to secure a shopping center location for your adoption event? Then this is the issue for you!
Bonnie Brown, Executive Director of the Nevada Humane Society, is able to generate so much interest in the stories of special needs animals, she not only raises enough money to underwrite their care but enough to pay for the rehabilitation of nearly all the treatable dogs and cats in the shelter and generate more awareness and financial support for the entire organization, too. Discover how she does it in One Good Story Can Raise Funds to Save Many Lives.
What better place to connect with potential adopters than a large shopping center? A prime location like a popular mall can save over 100 lives in a single weekend. If you've always thought securing a venue like that for your adoptions would be too difficult, what we have to tell you will change your mind. Learn who to contact, what to say, what you'll need, and when to make the approach in Pet Adoption Events at Shopping Centers: Everybody Wins.
Want to find a lost pet? Whether you're a shelter worker trying to help a guardian find a missing pet or you've lost a pet yourself, the first step to successfully locating a lost pet is to understand the very specific behaviors of lost dogs and cats - which are usually extremely different from their typical behavior. Find out more in What You Don't Know About Lost Pets Can Hurt Them.

You're invited to participate in a national University of Florida survey of dog experts including breeders, trainers, groomers, veterinarians, shelter staff, and rescuers, to compare your best guesses for the breeds of dogs in a series of photographs. These visual assessments will be compared to DNA breed profiles for the dogs. It's fun and easy and takes just 10-15 minutes!

Have a great summer,
