Rescue Group Program Assessment
In 2014, we realized that there was a need for VPA services in animal rescue organizations. However, the current VPA package did not align well with the unique structure that characterizes rescues. As a result, we developed the Rescue Group Program Assessment (RGPA). The RGPA is similar to VPA in that it is also an attitudes and engagement survey for volunteers. Through visits with rescue organizations and in-depth interviews with rescue volunteers and leaders, we developed a survey that addresses the most important attitudes and constraints in rescue contexts. The survey was reviewed and improved by experts in the field, and pilot testing has been completed with a large rescue in the Northeastern United States. Also similar to VPA, RGPA services will be offered free of charge through grant-funded scholarships.
