    Update: We'll be focusing on "monitoring behavior meds with shelter pets" and talking through a few tricky cases.
    ------------

    Hi All,

    As part of the Behavior Support Working Group for HASS (Human Animal Support Services), we are hosting monthly "collaboratives" (fancy word for zoom calls) to present guidance from experts and also answer questions and talk through sticky issues.

    Last month we focused in on the topic of behavior medications, and decided we want to continue this topic for our May call as well.

    All shelter/rescue staff and/or volunteers are welcome.
    I'll post the official agenda for the 1-hr call closer to date.

    Below are the call details.
    *Please reply or DM me with your email if you'd like me to add you to the invite! :)

    Hi Lori!

    Thanks so much for your interest in joining next week. I've shared the recording file from last month's discussion with each of you on this post. I believe you'll need to download it to view it. Let me know if you have access issues.

    Best,
    Amber

    Again, all shelter/rescue staff and/or volunteers are welcome.

    **Please submit information (link) about an animal in your shelter who is on medication and needs reevaluation or might need medication and you’d like recommendations. https://forms.gle/quJRzG4WLqMFADFi6
