Being forced to part with a beloved pet is a legitimate fear for seniors who are struggling to meet their animal’s daily care needs and can’t afford to pay for dog walking or other pet-related services.
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:
Reaching 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.
In this issue: Getting to know your community means getting outside your own four walls; a major push to help animals in Puerto Rico; taking effective evidentiary photos in cruelty cases; a rescuer argues for setting aside labels to make more of an impact for animals; why maintaining shelter animals’ emotional health is so important; and more.
