The following resources are intended to support the UF Vet School Community (or anyone working in animal sheltering, veterinary medicine, and behavior or pet care services) as we navigate the uncertainty and instability of life in the age of COVID-19.
It’s worth noting that these resources are helpful for managing stress and trauma exposure during a typical day at work or school. Because let’s face it: if you’re a helping professional or caregiver, you were stressed out BEFORE the stores ran out of toilet paper. Ready to get started? Your first stop is the recording of The UF Community Call. Watch it below:
On March 30th, 2020 we gathered for a call to connect, learn, and share their wisdom with one another. Watch the 80 minute webinar and you’ll learn:

I’m Jessica Dolce and I help dog trainers, shelter workers, veterinarians, and other animal care folks like you to make an impact, while also having the time and energy to take care of your own needs and enjoy your life!
If you’re feeling overwhelmed or stuck when it comes to compassion fatigue resources or that whole “work/life balance” thing, I’ve got your back.
I do this through one-on-one coaching, online classes, and my signature year-long training for animal welfare organizations called The Compassion in Balance Program.
