"Take the Fear Out of Sheltering, Meet Their Emotional Needs" by Dr. Marty Becker Learn all about the Fear Free Shelter Program and the emotional needs of the animals in your care. The Fear Free program empowers shelter, rescue, vet staff, and animal welfare employees and volunteers to apply key strategies and techniques designed to reduce the negative emotional states that are commonly experienced by shelter and rescue animals, including fear, anxiety, stress (FAS) and frustration, and to increase their enrichment opportunities. The Fear Free Shelter Program provides training suitable for all of the individuals involved in the care and oversight of shelter and rescue animals, from medical and behavioral staff to intake, reception, kennel and cattery staff to animal control officers, adoption counselors, foster caregivers and shelter volunteers.
