What’s happening in your shelter?

Animal shelters throughout the country are facing extreme challenges with staffing and length of stay for their pets. The recent rental crisis has also increased owner surrenders, adding to the burden of already overcrowded shelters. Unfortunately, these issues have become systemic. Don’t just take it from us, click on the links below and hear from shelter staff across the nation. We will continue to add more videos and updates as our community shelters navigate this crisis for homeless pets. It is a great time to reach out to your local shelter to foster, adopt, donate or simply say thank you for their incredible work to save lives.
