Our movement has made tremendous progress, grown stronger, and evolved, but there are still many challenges that need to be addressed. As we continue finding success inside the shelter with dropping euthanasia rates and increased adoptions, there are still animals we haven’t reached, who may never show up in shelter statistics — the community cats who continue to reproduce, the pets in underserved areas who lack access to veterinary care, and the pets whose owners can’t find a place to live due to outdated housing policies. To tackle these issues we must be focused, work together and learn from each other.

Be sure to check out the Animal Sheltering blog, where you’ll hear from our team and colleagues reflecting on the most critical issues in our field. We encourage you to be an active part of the Animal Sheltering online community, join the discussion and share your opinions in the comments. We look forward to hearing from you!
