Working Group 2: STAFF TRAINING & RESOURCES
Effective implementation of co-sheltering programs will require knowledge, compassion, and commitment of staff members. Identifying and creating the most comprehensive, user-friendly, and targeted resources as possible will enable organizations to offer effective training that will include health and safety information and integration of animals into case planning. Identified goals include developing resources and staff training content in the areas of emotional support animals, human-animal bond, and co-sheltering overall (logistics, implementation, etc.)

Is it a Service Animal, Assistance Animal (Includes Emotional Support Animals), or a Pet?
