For Sanctuary Workers and Volunteers
- We have started a new association, SWAVA, Sanctuary Workers and
Volunteers Association. Our mission is to assist and support
sanctuary workers and volunteers in the pursuit of excellence in
animal care. SWAVA will be an outlet for communication of ideas,
opinions and experiences. It will promote ongoing education of
sanctuary workers and volunteers and the standardization of
exceptional animal care in all sanctuaries. SWAVA will endeavor to
build positive working relationships between sanctuary members and
to instill more respect, strength and legitimacy for animals and
their sanctuary caretakers.
There are hundreds of other sanctuaries going above and beyond to
give a quality life to animals! Obviously, not all sanctuaries are
the same. We all care for different types of animals and face
different challenges. We are in various stages of development, some
starting out and others well established. But we all have one common
goal to take these animals out of their often detrimental
situations and to give them the best life possible at our
sanctuaries. Any one sanctuary alone is not enough. We should and
need to unify towards that ambition.
