Petfinder Pro June Newsletter
Dear Petfinder Members,
Catskill Animal Sanctuary  Saugerties, NY

Summer is often a time of relaxation and recharging. For those working in animal welfare, the stress level often rises with each incoming litter of summer kittens. How can we better understand and help the rollercoaster of emotions that come with each day in animal sheltering and rescue?

With an increase of awareness of animal welfare issues and increased attention to our own well-being, things are moving in the right direction. But when you’re the person on the front-lines dealing with the challenges of our field, it can take its toll.

To help gain more insight into compassion fatigue in the animal welfare field, Michigan State University is embarking new research. I am sharing their invitation and invite you to take 15 minutes to confidentially complete their online questionnaire.

Along with the challenges, animal welfare brings moments of incredible happiness. You are creating new families by connecting pets with people. Every new match is reason for celebration.

Happy adoptions!
