Advocating for animals is rewarding, but also challenging. Feelings of frustration, isolation, and “compassion fatigue” resulting from awareness of mass animal suffering can be emotionally draining, sapping energy which can lead to burnout. If you’re struggling with these and other difficult issues, call or email In Defense of Animals’ (IDA’s) new Animal Activist Helpline. Whether you need practical advice about a specific issue or just want to talk with someone who “gets it,” IDA’s trained counselors are available to provide personal support, strategize solutions, and help make your advocacy efforts truly sustainable. Contact the Helpline at 800-705-0425 or email@example.com.
