PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION SHELTER PARTNER WORKSHOPS
Novel Approaches to Community Cat Management
Dr. Kate Hurley, DVM, MPVM
Director of the Koret Shelter Medicine Program,
UC Davis Center for Companion Animal Health
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2013
10:30 a.m.—4:00 p.m.
ST. HUBERT’S COMMUNITY ROOM 575 Woodland Avenue, Madison, NJ
ONLY $10 TO REGISTER—INCLUDES LUNCH!
For over a century, sheltering programs have been a centerpiece of our response to abandoned and unwanted dogs and cats. In recent years, we’ve seen a dramatic divergence between the fates of these two species: while shelter intake and euthanasia have commonly declined on a per capita basis for dogs, for cats the rates have remained stubbornly high in many communities. The presence of a large population of un-owned “community cats” in most areas has a profound impact on the potential success of sheltering strategies. Evidence is building that novel approaches, which would not work well for dogs, can provide humane and cost-effective alternatives for cats within the shelter as well as outside the shelter walls.
This workshop will present data comparing the success of current practices in accomplishing some of the main goals of shelters for dogs versus cats. Alternative responses to community cats will be described that maintain the success of “traditional” shelter programs in accomplishing these goals, while dramatically improving the success in areas where many shelters continue to struggle. Practical examples will be provided, detailing challenges and success in a variety of communities.

The Animal Welfare Federation of New Jersey (AWFNJ) is hosting the workshop,
“When they Hop and Fly: Caring for Rabbits and Birds in the Shelter” on October 7, 2013 at St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center from 6:30pm – 8:30 pm.
Shelters and rescues groups are encouraged to come and learn how to meet the specialized needs of parrots and rabbits in a shelter/rescue environment. For organizations, rescues, or shelters that do not typically take in these pets, this is an excellent opportunity to ensure that you are providing appropriate care for these animals as well as guiding your staff who are charged with finding them permanent homes.
Educational materials and light refreshments will be provided.
Location: St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center
Address: 575 Woodland Avenue, Madison NJ
Time: 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Every organization wants to provide the best possible care for its animals, including those who are sick or have chronic medical issues. Learning how to maximize often limited resources improves and enhances our abilities to do the most we can for as many as we can. Dr. Dashfield will show you how to make wise decisions and get the most “bang for your buck” when treating the animals in your care.
No matter your budget, keeping healthy animals healthy in the first place serves your mission and saves money, time and stress. This session will review best practices for vaccination and other prophylactic measures in the shelter. Learn the “what, when and why” in order to modify or set the protocols that will meet the specific needs of your facility and provide sound disease prevention and control.
Please join us and take advantage as “Dr. Karen” shares her experience and expertise in designing medical care and disease control programs for shelters and wildlife rehabilitators throughout New Jersey.
