Community Outreach Program
Moving passion to action, Animal Haven is excited to announce our new Community Outreach program that raises awareness of the human-animal bond and strengthens pet ownership throughout New York City.
The program includes:
Helping Pets and People in Crisis, a safety-net program originating at the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals that is now based at Animal Haven. At Animal Haven, surrender prevention assistance includes referrals to low cost and free pet welfare services. In addition, the program offers emergency planning assistance and support for victims of domestic violence, individuals requiring brief hospitalizations, and others who risk losing their pets due to unexpected circumstance. Referrals can be made to JennyC@animalhaven.org.
Pet Assistance and Resource Center works with social service programs in at-risk communities to address pet welfare needs in collaboration with community-based organizations to maximize our impact. The program provides education, support, and collaboration regarding the intersection of pet ownership and poverty. Our goal is to promote pet retention before a crisis, increase awareness of local animal welfare services, and showcase ways in which human service programs can collaborate with animal welfare organizations to prevent pet relinquishment, increase client engagement, and expand services for pet owners.
Animal Haven’s Outreach Program is excited to introduce animal welfare to underserved communities and special populations. If your organization is interested in exploring opportunities with us, please contact Jenny at JennyC@animalhaven.org.
