    The key word in 2022 might be taken from Dr. Pizano’s book: collaboration. We have an opportunity to come together, and we don’t have to face challenges by ourselves as we work with our staff and our communities. Plus – stay tuned for a surprise announcement! Meanwhile have a wonderful holiday season!

    --- Original Post ---

    Join us for our first Leadership Roundup Call of December where we'll hear first from Cat Camp Jackson Galaxy and Stephanie Rogers, GCCA-C who will talk about their work to address 'disenfranchised loss' and 'cumulative grief' and how these concepts can aid in supporting veterinarians, shelter staff and volunteers, and animal control officers. They'll share what they're doing to improve mental health and wellbeing among animal professionals and tell you how you can get you and your staff involved.

    Second, we'll turn to Dr. Kristen Pogreba-Brown about the Omicron Variant and what you need to know to keep staff, volunteers, and members of the public safe as we head into winter with this new, emerging variant.

    Lastly, we'll spend the majority of our call with @Steve Zeidman of PetHeath, who will join us to share the latest in the shelter data trends and discuss why shelters are experiencing a higher-than-usual capacity for this time of year. Steve points to some concerning trends that could become bigger problems when we move into next spring and summer and we'll hear from you about what you're experiencing right now in your organizations.

    Please join us for this important call.
