About this Event

Dog Behavior for Rescues and Shelters

This first of it's kind in Rhode Island is a two day event on dog behavior, designed specifically for rescues who's dogs are in foster homes. Content will be relevant to the personnel selecting dogs for rescue as well as the fosters providing care. Though material will be focused on home-based rescue organizations, content will very much be relevant for brick and motor shelters. Event includes a limited number of tickets for the seminar only content from 9am - 12pm on Saturday and Sunday plus a VERY limited number of interactive opportunities from 1pm -3pm on both days. Don't miss out on this incredible opportunity!

Your organization may qualify for grant funding to attend this event from Ryan Animal Rescue Foundation! Apply to find out.
