Compassion fatigue is common among animal workers, particularly those in the animal welfare field. However, with the needs of the animals being placed first, this is usually not attended to and the morale of animal welfare workers suffers accordingly. State veterinary office Oudtshoorn organised a workshop targeting animal workers, particularly animal workers from various welfare organisations. The attendees ranged from SPCA staff as far as Mossel Bay, Garden Route, George PDSA, Oudtshoorn welfare volunteers, Animal Care Team SA (ACT SA), Oudtshoorn and Ladismith animal health technicians, Oudtshoorn pound workers, a Barrydale welfare worker and Calitzdorp animal welfare volunteers.
