It has been estimated that approximately half of the US pet population reside within shelters. What we hope for is a quick transition for these animals before finding a home. Unfortunately, significant mental and emotional trauma can occur from abuse and abandonment, commonly during the very phase of their lives when they should have been socialized. This lecture will focus on how to apply behavior therapy and environmental enrichment not only to decrease the stress and fear experienced by cats in shelters, but also to give them skills to promote adoption, and to make the lives of professionals that work with them much easier and more rewarding.
