Hello Everyone, and Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!
The OWCN staff decided to spend our Valentine’s Day with dinner and a movie. Well, not exactly dinner, more like root beer floats, cookies, and popcorn…..and it wasn’t really a movie, more of a training, but still….
We participated in a training webinar from the Green Cross Academy of Traumatology program, titled “Compassion Fatigue for the Animal Care Worker”; and yes, the irony of compassion fatigue on Valentine’s Day was not lost on us! We are hoping that by preparing for compassion fatigue, that in the event of a spill, we can help to avoid unmanageable stress and burn outs in our staff and volunteers, and keep everyone happy with their work.
So have a wonderful Valentine’s Day, and remember to take some time today for yourself and be stress free!
