The HASS education team strives to provide equitable access to the tools and resources needed to create a community-centric animal shelter system.
From collaborating with industry leaders to identify operational gaps, to full-scope development of proprietary resources rooted in honoring the human and animal bond, HASS is reimagining the animal welfare industry through innovative yet achievable implementation tactics.
