What happens when we support people in crisis and their pets? Join this interactive discussion to learn how creating a pet housing program not only removes a significant barrier to service, but also provides tremendous support in the healing process for people in crisis. You don’t have to be an animal lover to see how including pets in programming can have a powerful effect on everyone involved – from pets, to pet parents, to staff.

Audience Comments

  • “This was a really fun, and informative webinar. I love learning statistics.”
  • “Loved the depth of information and understanding of the topic. I learned something new today!”
  • “The presenter did an amazing job. Very Lively and knowledgeable.”
  • “This was a wonderful webinar, and I found it very informative especially when it was stated that 97 % of victims factored in keeping their pets with them when making the decision to seek shelter,”
  • “The audience participation was a fun element.”
  • “I enjoyed the interactivity of the presentation.”
  • “I learned there are many more resources than I knew about, and the scientific proof of how animals benefit our health.”
  • “This was a very professional and well-done presentation, very informative, and entertaining and I learned a lot about this topic! The most valuable thing I learned was that having pets in the workplace helps the agency’s workers’ well-being — and even helps with fundraising! Now — if only we can get administration/boards to listen to this and take note! I really hope that in the future, more DV shelters will be able to accommodate survivors with pets in-house.”
