"Pets Are Welcome" seeks to revamp the way the housing industry treats pets and their owners.
The Humane Society of the United States’ Animal Sheltering works to create a world where people and animals thrive, living happy, healthy lives together by focusing on key areas of impact: Addressing solvable behavior, pet care issues and housing-related problems to Keep Pets in Homes. Striving to Protect Cats by promoting innovative tools for managing cats wherever they live. To Reach Underserved Communities by increasing access to pet care and wellness services and information. And working to Increase Adoptions for pets already in shelters and rescue groups.
Animals shouldn’t suffer or bear unwanted litters because their owners can’t afford veterinary care. That’s the principle driving nonprofit spay/neuter clinics and other vet care assistance programs. Animal welfare organizations say such services are vital to reducing pet overpopulation, disease and suffering. But a vocal minority of private practice veterinarians view low-cost, subsidized care as unfair competition and a threat to their livelihoods.
