In addition to promoting the importance of physical and mental health, the covid-19 pandemic has also softened the hearts of thousands of people who wanted to add a commitment to their lives, such as caring for a pet.

Thank you to the shelter staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to care for, find homes and advocate for the pets that come through these doors; thank you to our amazing adoptive parents who open their hearts and homes to thousands of animals each year; Thank you to everyone who has chosen to adopt a shelter pet, either here or at one of the other amazing organizations; through our partner investment organizations around the world; without them it would not be possible.
