How wonderful would it be if you could prevent animals from ever coming into your shelter in the first place, while at the same time building a positive relationship with your community? The Austin Pets Alive! program Positive Alternatives to Shelter Surrender (PASS) aims to do just that. Learn from Patty Alexander, the head of the PASS program at APA!, on how they utilize their volunteers to successfully provide support for community members and ultimately keep animals out of the shelter. For more information on the PASS program, watch the short presentation below.
