Running a Lifesaving Sanctuary Certification
Over the course of this three-month program, you’ll learn what it takes to run a successful animal sanctuary from Best Friends founders and other subject-matter experts.
Animal sanctuaries provide safe places for pets and other animals to get healthy enough so they can be adopted or safely live out their lives surrounded by care and love. They’re places that are created and run by caring people like you.
Many people dream of running an animal sanctuary, and you might already have the skills, resources and talent needed to do just that. This program will show you how to use those skills to save lives and what to consider when thinking about running a sanctuary.
The Running a Lifesaving Sanctuary Certification is geared toward people who are interested in starting an animal sanctuary, not those looking to work in a municipal shelter or humane society. Our goal is to help people respect and reflect their community’s cultural diversity so that everyone feels welcome and comfortable.
