Rescue Jam in Oakland, CA

How quickly and easily America forgets it’s heroes.
For most of our history we had a National Dog, the Pit Bull.

Continuing Education … Just for Rescuers!

BADRAP, in Oakland, CA, has served as an education/advocacy and rescue example for organizations looking to improve pit bull adoptions since 1999. A nationally recognized resource for both dog owners and animal shelters, BADRAP provides valuable resources to dog owners and professional training opportunities to animal welfare workers in pursuit of new and better ways to help pit bulls in their shelters and communities.

WHAT: The Rescue Jam is a two-day conference for 501c3 rescue groups who are motivated to build a sustainable future for their organization. Join us for a busy weekend of lively discussion, field tested techniques, best practice guidelines and tricks of the trade for successful adoption programs that include pit bulls. A great place to learn, network and recharge. Both days will be busy and Saturday evening will be set aside for fun and good times. We hope you can be part of this memorable weekend!

Workshops include: Building a solid foster home team, attracting adopters, setting short and long-term goals, problem solving common behavior issues, doing dog/dog intros, making euthanasia decisions, engaging your community, finding funds for the projects you value. More to be announced as attendees share their key challenges in a (confidential) questionnaire.
