Engagement & Collaboration

One of our goals is to facilitate self-directed progress within our community. There's a lot of talent and enthusiasm right here in your own neighborhood - let's come together to work for meaningful change for animals.

The Petra Center will facilitate at least one working group (topic/project), but we're not setting the agenda. This group will represent a community consensus, and the first project will be selected by participants. What TPC will do is provide the initial support, organization, and bring in collaborative tools to nurture success.

Where do you see opportunities to make a difference? Join us! 

Some people talk to animals. Not many listen though. That’s the problem.
— A.A. Milne
