Saving America's Pets Vlog

If there is one genuine silver lining to a global pandemic, it’s the extent to which lines of communication within the animal welfare industry have opened up. We hear each other now, and we’re hungry to learn from others for the sake of our staff, communities, and animals in our care.    

Join Best Friends Chief Mission Officer, Holly Sizemore, for a weekly vlog focused on the future of animal welfare in the face of crisis. Every Friday, Holly is joined by special guests from around the industry to discuss innovative solutions, inspiring examples, and valuable advice from leaders in the field. What’s next for us? How do we move forward together?
