4-10-24 Study Results: How Do Access to Veterinary Care Challenges Impact Animal Welfare Orgs?
Includes a Live Web Event on 04/10/2024 at 3:00 PM (EDT)
The nationwide shortage of veterinarians disproportionately affects the work of animal welfare and animal care & control agencies.
Recognizing that we need to understand how the access to care crisis impacts our profession, The Association and The Program for Pet Health Equity at the University of Tennessee recently fielded a national survey to gain insights. Hundreds of organizations participated in the study which was comprised of questions related to personnel, budgets, and medical programs.
We need to understand the breadth and depth of these challenges so we can work toward solutions. During this webinar, the study’s principal investigator and The Association’s CEO will share our findings.
