Animal Services Reimagined

Join our movement. Get involved.

Human Animal Support Services (HASS) primary goal is to keep people and pets together. We are bringing animal welfare organizations and community members together to engage in partnerships that support the bond of people and animals.

This is a collaborative effort facilitated by American Pets Alive! and made possible by incredible partners, including Maddie’s® Fund, Rachael Ray Foundation, South Fork Foundation, Michelson Found Animals Foundation, Life of Riley at Springpoint, PetSmart Charities, Pedigree Foundation, Cuddly, Petfinder, and Brandywine SPCA.
