Julia Lewis

Would providing scanners to staff at home to scan found pets in their neighborhoods be helpful?
Julie Johnson
01:00:51
I made this mistake once--my house became the goto for strays :-)
Gina Knepp
01:01:39
Agree 100%, but as we all know, the biggest challenge is convincing well intentioned community members who are incensed by these suggestions. If all shelters adopted the same approach (and rescues), we might have a modicum of success managing this. I see many shelters still offering services that are non essential, which I appreciate, but don't understand.
Matt Chan

As we said back at Charleston Animal Society: "If You See, Leave 'em Be!"

This is a resource that was shared by one of our CA shelters during a previous calls - good messaging for what to do if someone finds an animal - https://www.dropbox.com/s/xags4bta4fouys1/Found%20Animal%20Tips%20and%20Tricks%20during%20COVID%2019%20sample.docx?dl=0

Kitten messaging:

Has the state Veterinary Board asked California Vets to provide an inventory of products? I saw this being done in New Mexico and was wondering if California is headed that way.

The recent AVMA statement is "At this point in time, there is no evidence that domestic animals, including pets and livestock, can spread COVID-19 to people. Your take, Dr Hurley?
Nikole Bresciani
01:06:49
is there going to be a global messaging as this issue of cats getting Coronavirus will create a social media frenzy? It would be great to see a statement from AVMA or CDC so we can all be consistent.

TAMMY DAVIS
01:11:59
I don't understand proposing field units deliver animals for non-essential services when they are being cautioned on interaction with the public same as shelters.
Jennifer Hawkins
01:12:05
What is the detail on increased stress and focus during this time? 4x increase? Not questioning the number (it sure feels like it!) but wondering the source.
TAMMY DAVIS
01:12:46
thank you...got it :)
Nikole Bresciani
01:13:00
We deliver animals to people and have implemented ground markers to enable social distancing when socials are conducted.
Shari O'Neill
01:13:55
I anticipate the pushback from cat advocates will be that ALL the kittens are i
Jennifer Hawkins
01:14:22
The hardest part is retraining staff. They want to provide great customer service and struggle to comply with social distancing in effort to be helpful.
Shari O'Neill
01:14:43
"in danger," and there is infinite fosters so the cats aren't in the shelter it will be OK. Theres a million contact points for foster

Elneda Connors
01:15:30
can you please discuss how we went from 5 to 14 day holds
Joy Smith
01:16:23
What suggestions do you have for dealing with medical issues the community kitten caregivers encounter? For example, someone found a litter, willing to care for them but they have bad URI, etc?
Phillip Zimmerman
01:16:31
RE: ACO safety - Front Street has implemented having city call takers ask basic yes and no health questions and notating them on calls requiring physical response. Similar to if you were checking in at the Dr office. "Has anyone in the house traveled?", "Has anyone tested + for Covid or have symptoms" etc.
Joy Smith
01:16:49
Thanks Phillip.
SARAH HUMLIE
01:17:28
Elk Grove has implemented similar health screening questions for ACO AND for fosters, RTO appointments and anyone who might have to come to the shelter
John Peaveler
01:17:38
How do we get the link to watch after?

Julia Lewis
01:30:58
Thank you for the helpful information!
Leese Johnson
01:31:00
In the abundance of caution, should staff limit handling of healthy non-exposed dogs?
Brenda Barnette
01:34:46
We wrote scripts and have revised them as needed to help staff talk with the community when they need to say no. Brenda Barnette
