9:30am-11:30am: Presentations by Seth Casteel and Jackson Galaxy
12pm – 2:00pm: Are you interested in volunteering with your shelter or rescue? Stay from 12-2 for special shelter presentations by Seth and Jackson, where you can ask questions, and learn fun and interesting ways you can get involved.
The November 2 event is part of GreaterGood.org's new Cats R Cool signature program to help improve cat adoptions.
As part of his Cats Uncaged tour, Galaxy will reveal the secrets of "Cat Mojo" while pet photographer Casteel will teach the basics of photographing cats to improve their chances of adoption based on techniques that he has taught at the One Picture Saves A Life workshops this summer.
Anyone is welcome to attend this event, which will include prizes and the opportunity to adopt cats from local rescues and shelters.
Pre-registered shelter staff and rescue volunteers will have an opportunity to meet with either Galaxy or Casteel after the public presentations to learn more. There also will be special presentations for shelter staff and rescue volunteers from Boehringer Ingelheim on vaccinations and Found Animals on microchipping and disaster preparedness.
Meet Galaxy and Casteel on November 2, from 9:00am - 12:00pm at The Glenn Theater at the Backyard, 13801 Bee Cave Parkway, Bee Cave, Texas 78738.
This event is presented by The Animal Rescue Site in partnership with GreaterGood.org, Petfinder Foundation, John Paul Pet, FreeKibble.com, Halo Pet, Dog is Good, Found Animals, Boehringer Ingelheim, Austin Humane Society, and Austin Pets Alive.
More About Cats R Cool
GreaterGood.org launched the Cats R Cool signature program in 2013 to help shelters and animal rescue groups create more cat adoptions.
Although cats make wonderful pets, the majority that enter the rescue system are not adopted. Cats R Cool works to make the situation for shelter cats better through public education, shelter outreach, and grants.
More About One Picture Saves A Life
GreaterGood.org launched the One Picture Saves a Life signature program in 2013 to address the need in shelters and rescues for improved adoption photography.
With so many adoptions starting online, an adoption photo is a pet's first and best chance at getting a potential adopter into the shelter to meet him or her. Proper grooming and improved photography helps increase adoption rates and improves the overall image of rescue and adoption.
