Roadblock-free is the way to be.

Fewer pets in shelters. More resources for people with pets. More animal-friendly communities. Healthier, happier animals with safe places to call home.  

These are our shared goals. But are we all doing as much as we can to achieve them? 

For example, what does your pet adoption process look like? Is it welcoming, conversation-based and solution-oriented? Or does it have roadblocks like these:

  • Home visits
  • Vet checks
  • Landlord approvals
  • Multi-page applications
  • Family restrictions
  • Fencing requirements
  • Income questions

Now more than ever, being a part of the sheltering and rescue community means actively looking for ways to keep pets in the places they call home and inviting more animal-loving folks to the lifesaving party.

Take the pledge to be roadblock-free!
