Making a Difference

Pet Assistance Resources

To support struggling families and their pets, we provide valuable resources such as a list of programs designed for seniors and low-income families.

Pet Protection

We advocate for at-risk family members and safety planning for their pet(s) because we recognize a link between animal abuse and family violence.

Wildlife Protection

An opportunity exists for a new approach to learning how we can coexist with wildlife and advocate for protective policies at the state and local level.

Puppy Mills

Puppy mills breed dogs in horrific conditions that often lead to genetic and medical conditions in puppy mills sold through pet stores.

Community Cats

We provide resources and build partnerships to expand opportunities to humanely care for community cats while reducing populations and nuisances.

Tethered Dogs

We educate communities and local officials on the inhumane suffering and public safety concerns by tethering dogs outside.

Humane Education

The opportunity to build compassion for community, family and animals exists through humane education opportunities.

Breed Discrimination

Breed Discrimination Ordinances demonize a breed of dog irrespective of individual behavior, raise constitutional issues, and fail to increase public safety.
