Everything I Know About Resilience I Learned from My Shelter Dog
Recorded On: 10/27/2020
We've all faced challenges in our time in animal welfare, but 2020 has brought many of us to a whole new definition of "roll-over!" How can we muster the strength to keep doing the work on behalf of the animals we love so much? Be inspired by them, of course! In this presentation, we'll talk about what we can learn from some of the most moving shelter dogs about resilience, stress as adaptation, and quality of life for pets and the people that care for them.
