Locking Plates in Veterinary Orthopedics

Strategies for Successful Animal Shelters is the first book to assess the relationship between shelter traits, activities and critical outcome variables, such as live release or save rates. This book provides a data-based evaluation of shelter processes and practices with explicit recommendations for improved shelter activities.

  • Offers best-practice recommendations and how they are used in animal shelters
  • Analyzes which shelter traits, programs and activities are most strongly associated with optimal outcomes, including live release rates
  • Includes an assessment of future research and activities to optimize animal welfare within shelters
