Shelter sanitation is a team effort, which means everyone must be on the same page to prevent disease outbreaks. After a basic sanitation training session, Dumb Friends League has all staff members sign a pledge of commitment to maintain sanitation standards.
Now You Try It:
If you’d like to implement this idea at your shelter, Dumb Friends League recommends the following:
Make sure the pledge covers all the sanitation basics (for example, do you—and all of your colleagues—know that washing your hands is the single most important thing that can be done to reduce infectious disease in an animal shelter?)
Ask staff for input on writing the pledge so that everyone has a vested interest in it
Laminate and post the signed pledge and display it as a reminder of the staff’s commitment to sanitation
