    Moving Animals—in the Right Direction

    Wayne Pacelle and his adopted dog, Lily

    The long-distance transport of rescued animals—from state to state and even from far-away countries—has long given animals in trouble a second chance. The gale-force winds of Hurricane Katrina and the massive rescue work it inspired produced a nationwide diaspora of Gulf Coast animals. The shelters in Louisiana and Mississippi were either submerged or full, and long-distance transport was the only way to save lives.

    Cooped-Up Pooches? Loan 'Em Out!

    The Dog Trotter program helps keep the Delaware County SPCA’s canines well-exercised.

    A temporary buddy for your sheltered pooches can help them burn off energy—and even get adopted

    Winter Warm-Up

    Volunteers for the Houses of Wood and Straw (HOWS) Project in Virginia go out every Saturday from late October through March to deliver doghouses and talk to owners about winter pet care.

    Shelters and rescue groups give people resources to help animals beat the cold

    “There’s not going to be a cat who doesn’t have some kind of shelter for the winter.”

    The Road Home Goes Through the Office

    Office cat Callie likes to make sure employees at the Animal Rescue League of Iowa (ARL) get plenty of breaks—by sitting on their keyboards so they can’t type. Besides having its own office cats, ARL places adoptable cats at local businesses.

    Shelters invite businesses to foster cats and promote adoptions

    These workers don’t need a salary— they’ll work (or at least hang out) for room and board. They won’t wear a tie (probably), but they are more than happy to spend nights and weekends at the office.

    If this sounds like a good deal, direct an inquiry to the Animal Rescue League of Iowa (ARL). The shelter is hiring out its felines to fill temporary jobs as “office cats” until they find permanent positions.

    Tapping Into the Power of People

    By engaging the community in Tree House Humane Society’s TNR program, Jenny Schlueter (right) says she likes to “imagine cats bridging the divide between people.”

    An open, inclusive approach to community cat management spurs positive results

    Jenny Schlueter, a self-professed “cat lady,” is also a people-person. You know the type—always ready with a sunny smile and genuinely happy to meet someone new. If that description doesn’t fit you to a T, you’re not alone. But Schlueter’s experiences can help even the most introverted cat advocate see the benefits of engaging with people.
