Foundations for Behavioral Well-Being

The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement

Event Description

Let's face it, shelter living is challenging. The shelter is filled with strange noises, weird smells, unfamiliar people, new food, and questionable roommates. On top of all that, we do not really have a way to explain to the animals that we have their best interests in mind, so we must show them. But what's the best way to do this? Come to this session to find out!

We'll discuss how to meet the five freedoms of animal welfare for all animals in our care in affordable, doable ways, such as housing, in-housing enrichment, out-of-housing time, and certainly length of stay. You'll leave with actionable ideas to implement at your shelter, as well as long-term goals to improve the lives of all animals (and people!) in your shelter. All staff (both medical and non) and especially shelter leaders with decision making capabilities will benefit from this webinar.

This session is part of the Shelter Medicine series, a collaboration between the Association of Shelter Veterinarians and The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement.
