No Kill Conference – Luna's House

July 29, 2013

Luna's House Inc., a Harford County animal shelter, was represented by Lynne Freund and Linda Bullis at the annual No-Kill Conference held July 13-14 in Washington, D.C.

They attended a variety of workshops to assist Luna's House in continuing the life saving efforts for companion animals. This year's focus was in attending workshops such as "Pet Retention," "Reuniting Lost Pets," and using social media to keep pets from entering the shelter systems.

Other workshops attended dealt directly with the care and welfare of the adoptable animals at Luna's House. These workshops were entitled: "Saving Shelter Dogs," "Shelter Medicine," "Shelter Enrichment for Dogs" and "Turbocharging Pit Bull Adoptions."

Information gathered from these workshops and networking with other rescues and shelters will be used to enhance the policies and procedures in place at Luna's House.

The philosophy of Luna's House, located in Edgewood, is that each animal should be treated as an individual and some policies and procedures should not be set in stone when it comes to saving the lives of our companion animals. Part of Luna's House's mission is to educate the public on the importance of quality care for pets and keep them happy.

Luna's House Animal Care and Education Center is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to bettering the lives of animals and their people.
