The First Post

Welcome to the Shelter Report!  As stated above, this is a blog dedicated to discussing emerging trends and central concepts of animal sheltering and welfare.  This blog is written for sheltering professionals and staff with a special emphasis for the Chicago area, but the ideas can easily be extrapolated to communities anywhere.  I will take what I’ve learned in the past seven years at a private non-profit shelter and a large municipal control facility and bring it to life on the pages of this blog.  Animal sheltering has changed so much in the time I have been working in the field, and with public awareness and community support growing, the field will only continue to evolve.  Check back on November 1 for the official launch of the Shelter Report!
