ethically challenging situations in animal care during COVID-19

The global pandemic has had a profound impact on people, animals and the environment. Veterinarians and allied animal health workers faced unique challenges, such as having to relinquish personal protective equipment, ventilators (and sometimes even staff) to human health care, and balancing public, client, personal and staff safety with animal welfare in an everchanging environment.

Frequency, Stressfulness and Type of Ethically Challenging Situations Encountered by Veterinary Team Members During the COVID-19 Pandemic by Anne Quain,

Misinformation regarding Cat Protection

Over the past few weeks, we’ve received some concerning calls from people who’d been misled or had misunderstood what organisation they were dealing with: when they called us at Cat Protection, they said they had been dealing with our ‘branch’ or a ‘representative’. In fact, we had no prior dealings with these callers.

Please be aware, there is only one Cat Protection Society of NSW and you will find us at 103 Enmore Road Newtown (shelter) or a few doors down at 85 Enmore Road (Cat Boutique).

Port of Newcastle cat shooting
