How to Plan an Outdoor Dog Adoption Event
You need to get everyone on the same page, including the volunteers, rescue organizations, shelters, and other relevant parties. Once everyone agrees to attend the event, you can start planning. You’ll need to secure a location, ensure all animals have received their vaccinations, organize enclosures for the animals, put safety measures in place, and put a proper adoption screening process in place.
There are additional considerations for the venue. Is it outdoors or indoors? Are there restroom facilities, and are they sufficient?
