Saving the lives of animals in your community is in YOUR hands
Every day, 1,000 dogs and cats are killed in America's shelters just because they don't have a home. But we’re working to change that, and we can't do it without your help.
Kitten fostering and community cat programs are keeping cats safe and healthy. Local action teams are working to connect people with resources for their pets and to create pet-friendly policies that save lives. You have a place in that lifesaving picture, and finding it has never been easier.
You can make a difference for dogs and cats in your own community and nationwide, no matter where you live.
