Melanie - I know when I am using my laptop with AirPods and have my phone nearby, I have to turn off my phone bluetooth cuz it defaults back to my phone. IDK if that helps but that’s regular drama for me.

We just finished getting everyone through Fear Free. Now we are adjusting practices and policies to ensure we are living it. Its been a great opportunity for us.

Our team in LA has been able to spend more time focusing on their “length of stay task force” virtually by prioritizing giving special time to LOS animals who need that extra oomph to find an outcome (more than they could when it was “business as usual”). They also started a kitten hotline to give people tips on how to care for kittens they are finding (PUT THEM BACK!!)

People are afraid to fail...especially the older we get. When you mix things up and they need to learn something new, there is a lot of fear.

Kate Hurley

Jeremy there have been data shared by some shelters on recent national calls - not published in a journal but out there. Have you seen those?
