Association of Shelter Veterinarians - Guidelines for Standards of Care in Animal SheltersMay 8, 2012
The idea of developing uniform standards of care for animal shelters has been discussed in many circles for years. In 2008, the Association of Shelter Veterinarians (ASV) undertook this as a serious project, with the goal of creating a document that would help all shelters work at an improved level for the health and welfare of all the creatures in their care.
The ASV's Guidelines for Standards of Care in Animal Shelters is a comprehensive shelter standards document that was two years in the making. Please visit the Association of Shelter Veterinarians to learn more and download a free copy of the Guidelines.
