2017 APDT Annual Educational Conference & Trade Show

SA07 - Enrichment in Richmond

Oct 21, 2017 1:15pm ‐ Oct 21, 2017 3:15pm

Standard: $20.00


We care for an average of 100 dogs and 150 cats daily at the Richmond SPCA and keeping them safe and sane while they are in our care is job #1. Medical care is critical --- and behavior modification is often required, but much of what we do is daily kennel enrichment. In this presentation, we will look at some of our successful enrichment programs (Running Buddies, FOCUS list, Green Team volunteers, Cookie Rounds, Animal Brigade, etc), highlight best-of-breed programs at other shelters around the world, and look at enrichment activities that might work for pets living in a foster or forever home.
