Humane Society of the United States ‘Compassion Fatigue’ Workshop for People Working in Animal Welfare

People working the front lines whether it’s for human medical needs or animal welfare are all feeling the emotional stress with the ongoing pandemic.  That includes people with animal rescues, 0veterinarian offices, and even wildlife rehabilitation staff.

That’s why the Humane Society of the United States created what’s known as a ‘Compassion Fatigue’ virtual workshop through Zoom for people in this line of work in Michigan, to connect and find some relief.

The Michigan state director for the Humane Society of the United States, Molly Tamulevich says the idea of compassion fatigue happens year-round with people working for animal welfare and medical needs.  The free, virtual workshop is set for Thursday, August 6th from 6 to 8 p.m. through Zoom.  There are 500 available spots and so far about 50 people have signed up.

Staff from the Humane Society of the United States will be hosting the workshop that is geared toward people in Michigan working in animal welfare.

If you would like more information or would like to attend the Zoom workshop you can email Molly Tamulevich at: mtamulevich@humanesociety.org.
