Partnering With Your Local Domestic Violence Shelter to Support People and Pets

February 16, 2021

How can shelters grow as community resources through relationships built on trust, support, and sensitivity? Animal shelters are expanding to meet community needs, and partnerships are key to supporting more people and the pets they love.

In this webinar, we take a look at partnerships with domestic violence shelters: how to make the connection, build relationships, and use shelter space to support survivors and their pets in times of challenge and change.

Hear from Devon Krusko from RedRover and Shelbi Waters from Souris Valley Humane Society on the tips and tools local organizations can use to create powerful partnerships.
