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.
Other new programs, career opportunities, and services that will be launched in the next year include:
Twenty additional Tier 2 pilot shelters from the United States and Canada will begin working and developing programs based on the lessons learned from Tier 1 pilot shelters.
HASS is a community collaboration led by American Pets Alive! and powered by incredible partners, including Maddie’s Fund, South Fork Foundation, Michelson Found Animals Foundation, Pedigree Foundation, Petfinder, and Brandywine SPCA.
