Get Involved with HASS
Do you want to make sustainable change for pets and the people that love them? Join our movement.
Human Animal Support Services (HASS) is an international coalition of animal services leaders and 38 pilot organizations transforming the sheltering system through innovative programs and services. From Los Angeles to Washington DC, from El Paso to Atlanta, these large US cities are serving as pilot models, embracing key strategies for making positive, immediate change. The work of the coalition team focuses on keeping animals in their homes and communities, building foster-centric animal services agencies, and empowering animal lovers to find solutions for common human-animal challenges.
These 23 organizations are fully invested in holistically implementing the HASS elements.
Tier 2 Pilot Shelters from the United States and Canada have access to all of the resources, tools and information of Tier 1 Shelters and are implementing the elements over a longer period of time.
