    Managing community cats

    “Community cats” is the catch-all term the animal welfare community uses for those feral and stray cats living outdoors in our communities. These cats are generally considered unowned or to have a loose affiliation with one or more people who care for them -- approximately 10% of the American public feed outdoor cats who they don’t consider their own pets. It is unclear how many community cats exist in the U.S., but we estimate there may be 30 – 40 million of them.

    Operation Hero-Animal Bond

    Through Operation Hero-Animal Bond (OHAB), the Humane Society of the United States connects our 350+ partner rescue groups and shelters to veterans seeking to adopt a pet in their local area. We cover the cost of pet adoption for qualified veterans and provide adoption kits or gift cards so that these new pet parents are set up for success with important care items such as pet food, flea and tick preventatives, a leash, a collar, enrichment items, etc.

    Shelter Ally Project

    This is a remarkable time for our field—shelter euthanasia is down to its lowest point in history, there are thousands of different organizations working together to save animals, adoption by the public is at an all-time high and our shared goal of seeing the end of euthanasia of healthy, adoptable animals is tantalizingly close. However, even as we celebrate this success, there are pockets of the country that have not come as far in terms of reducing pet overpopulation, and for whom the dream of minimal euthanasia still seems unreachable.
