At many shelters, ringworm can lead to devastating consequences. However, it does not have to be — with proper protocols, it can be safely treated and cured. The San Francisco SPCA saves over 350 animals with ringworm every year. Wanting to do more, they created the SPORE (Shelters Preventing Outbreaks of Ringworm through Education) program in 2013 to teach others how to better detect, treat, and manage ringworm in their shelter. For this session, Laura Mullen, Shelter Medicine Outreach Manager at the SFSPCA, will be outlining research-based protocols that are in use at there and examine how those same concepts apply to a variety of different shelters and rescues. We will explore the use of volunteers and the community to help this type of program flourish in fanatically constrained environments, such as animal shelters. We will also take a look at a new pilot foster program for ringworm animals called the Finishing School Foster Program that fosters out ringworm animals at the end of their treatment, freeing up space in the shelter to help more animals in need.
