Being Trauma-Informed When Dealing with Pet Re-Homing

The words we use are important and what we say and how we say it can have a big impact on the people around us. At AARCS, we have worked hard to be culturally understanding and we continue to learn and understand more about the people we assist daily.  Another area we are learning more about is being trauma-informed and understanding the barriers faced by those who are place-at-risk, and experiencing poverty or discrimination. 


During a recent planning session with the cat team, we discussed the surrender form and surrender agreement — how these forms are used and the process that people go through when bringing their cats to AARCS to be rehomed. This is often a very traumatic event for pet owners. There are many reasons why this happens and jumping to judgement does not help either the animal or the people.
