BREED ID WORKSHOP
CFODC has developed and implemented a PowerPoint presentation of a Breed ID Workshop for shelter workers, rescuers and volunteers as well as the general pet owning public. Once we do the presentation, we leave an entire packet with the organization with which they can refresh their familiarity of breed ID principles on an ongoing basis. The packet contains the CD with the PP presentation, materials that can be copied for distribution to anyone that wants to refresh their memories as well as a dog care and training brochure for new owners who adopt from a shelter with our permission to copy and distribute to adopters. Included in this brochure is a 1-800 help line we have established and implemented for pet owners struggling with behavior or training problems.
We’ve done several very well received presentations for LA City Animal Control, and are in the process of scheduling several more, as well as hoping to schedule several for LA County Animal Control. Kern Co. Animal Control is in the process of scheduling a presentation for their shelter employees, volunteers and the general pet owning public soon.
The packet is free to CA shelters. While we can just send you a packet, we would prefer to do a “formal” presentation at a mutually agreed upon date and time if at all possible.
We would ask a $39.95 donation to cover materials and mailing for anyone in other states who would like a copy of the entire packet. Requests should be made through CFODC’s website to any of the board members who will then contact you to facilitate delivery of your packet.
We are excited for the opportunity to educate more Americans about pet ownership and breed characteristics.
