U.S. Animal Welfare Organizations Launch Human Animal Support Services Pilot

Austin, TX, June 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Human Animal Support Services (HASS), a new animal welfare organizational model, will implement a new range of services for pets and people in 12 pilot cities, helping keep more animals in their homes and communities and reducing the number entering the shelter system through programs and resources.

The ideas for HASS were born during the early days of COVID-19, as the pandemic resulted in record numbers of pets being housed in the community through pet foster care.
