Encouraging enrichment through engagement

Description: Enrichment in shelter settings is incredibly important for not only the animals but also for staff and volunteers. Providing enrichment helps to decrease stress, illness, and increases adoption in cats and dogs which in turn keeps volunteers and staff happier. 

In this workshop, we will be discussing how to recruit, empower, engage, and retain volunteers while also increasing your organizations impact and improving public perception by enriching the lives of your shelter’s residents. 

We will provide specific enrichment activities for all different age groups from the local girl scout troop to senior citizens and share with you some of the programs that have proven most successful.
