I got back to work today after missing 2 days and I had 92 emails. Well, actually, not even two days. I checked email at 10:30am on Tuesday and then again at noon today (Thursday). You wouldn't think a small animal shelter had so much going on. But, 92 emails later, you'd think again. Here is a sample of those emails:
- Message from the Oakland Animal Welfare Group saying the shelter budget for the city shelter has been approved.
- Message from ND about the status of the vandalized van.
- Message from KP about spay neuter chaos on Wednesday.
- Message from SS about some probation dogs. (Probation dogs are those that show some kind of aggression either while they are in adoption or during their STE- Secondary Temperament Evaluation. We set them up on behavioral modication plan and reevaluate in one or two weeks. If we see improvement, we modify plan and continue working. If we see complete improvement or no issues, we can proceed getting them into adoption. If we see no progress or worsening, we start the unadoptable animal process.)
- Message from new agility instructor.
- Message about NDs time off.
- Many messages with FYIs.
- And one message about Kahlua going on Paws to Consider. Kahula is our longest term dog right now. He has been here almost a year. Paws to Consider is a program that allows potential adopters to take a dog or cat home for a week to "try them out" before officially adopting, thus reducing the fears and overwhelming feelings that come with a new dog perhaps not working out. The program has been very successful and many long term animals have been adopted this way.
