There are 50+ communities across the United States that are saving more than 90% of the animals entering their open admission county shelters. Wonder what their secret is? Join us as we learn from cities, towns and communities that have stopped the killing and learn what you can do in your own community to save animals.
Last year’s Great Shelters Conference was attended by almost 150 animal advocates from 2 countries and 12 states to learn about the exciting hope and promise of the No Kill Philosophy. The 2012 conference will be bigger and better as we’re adding a second day to the program to lift up the hood and delve into the nitty-gritty details of achieving No-Kill.
This year’s conference will once again feature Nathan Winograd, internationally recognized speaker author and Director of the No Kill Advocacy Center. Mr. Winograd is at the forefront of the No Kill Movements sweeping the United States, New Zealand, Australia and Canada. He has helped launch No Kill Movements in Washoe County, NV (Reno); Tompkins County, NY (Ithaca); Shelby County, KY (Shelbyville); Travis County, TX (Austin); Albermarle County, NC (Charlottesville); Washington County, UT (Ivans); Wyandotte County, KS (Kansas City); Williamson County, TX (Georgetown); and Chippewa County, MI (Sault Ste. Marie).
Diane Blankenburg, Development Director for the Nevada Humane Society in Reno, will share how Reno has changed an over 80% kill rate to a 92% SAVE rate. Diane will be speaking both Saturday and Sunday to help attendees shorten their learning curves as they march toward No Kill in their communities.
Susanne Kogut, Kelly Jedlicki, Bill LeFeuvre and other No Kill speakers will be sharing their successes and the learning opportunities so the attendees can shorten the time it takes to achieve a Save Rate of over 90% of all open admission shelter animals in a community.
The shortest path to success is to follow in the footsteps of someone who’s achieved what you desire. Nathan, Diane, Susanne and Kelly have first hand experience in achieving No Kill and are coming to Cincinnati to help you.
While you are here, you can network with like-minded animal advocates – shelters, rescues, animal control workers, veterinarians, students, volunteers, policy makers – meeting resources that you may never have known existed.
