Every Wednesday during the month of September, there will be a 50-minute Zoom Huddle at 12pm PT/3pm ET. Each Zoom Huddle will consist of 20-minute presentations from peers involved in Return to Home programs at their animal shelter or rescue organization. This will be followed by 30-minute Q&A. Topics will coincide with the Return to Home practices.

You only have to register once to sign up for all of the huddles. Weekly email reminders will be sent out with that week’s discussions. We look forward to seeing you!
