About

Those of us who work with or care for animals have likely witnessed, heard about, or experienced traumatic situations — from euthanasia to animal abuse to pet overpopulation. Chronic exposure to these stressors can take a heavy toll on our personal lives, our relationships, and our job performance. It can affect us mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually, leading to what’s called compassion fatigue, or “the cost of caring.” 

This training allows your employees and/or volunteers to gain valuable tools to help them manage compassion fatigue, which in turn can lead to improved work performance, less sick days, decreased turnover, and ultimately, better care of the animals. The interactive workshop is geared toward all animal professionals, including shelter staff, veterinarians, vet techs, animal welfare officers, rescue workers, volunteers, foster parents, wildlife rehabilitators, management, support staff, and all others involved in animal welfare.
