For Industry Professionals

Become a Partner Organization

A whole new world for companion animal services is within our reach.

We are leaving the past behind to build a new, better animal welfare system focused on keeping pets and people together. 

Would you like to be part of this growing national and international project to transform animal services through innovative programs and services?

Become a Human Animal Support Services partner organization! We are now opening our project up to new members, and we’d love to include you.

It costs nothing to join and there’s so much to gain, for your animal shelter and the community you serve:
  • Reduce the number of animals entering your shelter by learning ways to keep pets with the people that love them
  • Access self-paced courses and leading-edge learning opportunities
  • Professional development opportunities for you and your staff
  • 33 HASS working groups, each led by industry experts, aiming to solve the toughest challenges that stand in the way of transformative change in animal welfare
  • Job-Alikes give you weekly opportunities to network with peers doing the same work as you, to discuss common issues, ask questions, brainstorm solutions, and share program ideas 
  • Opportunities to share your successes on a national and international platform

We are a national and international coalition innovating the outdated animal sheltering system, and we want you to be a part of it! Find out more by filling out this form
