No Kill in Motion: Rejection of Adopters and Keeping Focused on our Goal

Rejection of Adopters and Barriers to Adoption


We hear all the time about adopters being rejected and about barriers to adoption. What causes this inherent mistrust of the public? Aren't shelters putting more animals at risk and causing them more stress when adoption is made so difficult? This panel discussion runs about 15 minutes. Participating are Davyd Smith of No Kill Colorado, Alan Rosenberg of the NJ Animal Observer, Shirley Marsh of Yes Biscuit and Aubrie Kavanaugh of No Kill Huntsville and Paws4Change.

Participating are Davyd Smith of No Kill Colorado, Alan Rosenberg of the NJ Animal Observer, Shirley Marsh of Yes Biscuit and Aubrie Kavanaugh of No Kill Huntsville and Paws4Change. The discussion lasts about 12 minutes.
