You don’t have to be the expert in everything! It’s important to work with partner organizations to create a program that meets the needs of your community.
HEAR FROM OUR GRANT RECIPIENTS:
“I don’t know if I have words of wisdom, other than collaboration is really the key. You would be surprised who your allies might be.”
“Community awareness is key. Being able to have working relationships with local veterinarians, pet supply businesses, animal rescue foundations, as well as people in the community with a passion for animals.”
“I would encourage other shelter managers to engage their community in the project. Pet sheltering at a domestic violence shelter is a popular project among community members.”
