Advocacy: defending the pets who need it most
All around the country, cats and dogs who enter shelters are at risk of not making it out alive due to housing restrictions and other outdated laws in our communities.
How can you help change that? By teaming up with fellow community members and encouraging elected officials to support pet-friendly laws and policies.
