Many of us are involved in the rescue or rehoming of animals. However, the number of animals in need often exceeds our resources, and it can be hard to admit when we have reached our capacity. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected this equation in both positive and negative ways. We have a responsibility to ensure a good quality of life to animals in our care, but how do we do this? This session will look at determining capacity, providing care and enrichment, disease management, successful adoption and making the difficult decision to euthanize. Attendees will come away with the tools needed to assess and improve quality of life for animals in their care.
Humane Society International’s Global Animal Issues Track is tailored for attendees outside the United States. These sessions offer solution-based presentations for issues often seen in countries lacking significant animal welfare infrastructure or awareness.
