An Introduction To Community-Focused Animal Services

Community-focused animal sheltering means engaging the entire community in caring for our pets and supporting families with safety net services that keep companion animals in homes.

Cats And Kittens

Make a plan to keep your community informed about the humane and effective programs that support both free-roaming and housed cats. This communications kit will help you talk to your community about cats and cat programming.

This communications kit is focused on foster-centric sheltering: the concept of moving more animals to home-based care rather than institutional care.

Space Crisis

This communications kit is intended to help animal organizations talk to the public about space crises in ways that will motivate people to take action. Offer different ways of talking about being at crisis capacity, so as not to lose the power of this urgent message.

Lost Pet Reunification

Reuniting animals with their families help keep people and pets together, and ensures shelters aren’t filled with pets that have a home. This communications kit will help you talk with your community about how to get lost pets back home faster.
