Have you heard of the Fear Free Shelters Program?
I took the program to learn more about what dogs and cats may experience while in a shelter. Many become traumatized due to lack of understanding what these precious souls need.
So the Fear Free Shelters Program aims to “provide training that is suitable for all individuals involved in the care and oversight of shelter and rescue animals—from medical and behavioral staff to intake, reception, kennel, and cattery staff to animal control officers, adoption counselors, foster caregivers, and shelter volunteers.” Check it out here.
I’ve worked with many animals to relieve the emotional distress from being in a shelter or living as a stray. If your pet is suffering from unresolved distress or trauma, I’d love to help. Please request a session here.
