  • American Bar Association Animal Law Committee: Pro Bono Opportunity: Join Us In Building Resilience In Animal Shelters During the Pandemic- To promote strong communities for people and animals during the pandemic, provide legal support to animal shelters who currently do not have foster programs to establish them, and to strengthen existing foster programs. Foster programs (i.e., temporary housing of animals in the homes of volunteers) can help support shelters, their staff and the animals they serve. Fostering an animal during these times of uncertainty and social distancing can also provide emotional support and a positive activity for the foster carer. Learn more and sign up here
