Best Friends Podcast guest Clare Callison from American Pets Alive!

The Best Friends Podcast Episode 93

How to establish and grow your animal rescue transport partnerships
December 23rd, 2021

It’s Christmas Eve-Eve, and we hope you are having a safe and happy holiday season.

As we talked about last week, the national level lifesaving data is starting to show some concerning trends, such as increased length of stay. One key lifesaving strategy is transport - moving animals from one community to another with fewer adoptable pets and greater demand.

This episode is another fantastic session from the 2021 Best Friends National Conference. The presenter, Clare Callison from American Pets Alive!, shares her experience building transport programs and what you need to do to find, and cultivate, the right partnerships to create your own sustainable, effective transport program.
