The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is putting the nation’s animals at risk.
People are losing the ability to pay for essential supplies and veterinary care for pets and horse rescues, wildlife sanctuaries and other organizations are struggling with staffing and resource shortages.
Your emergency gift will help us respond to this crisis and the ripple effect on animals in need due to increased poverty now and in the months and years ahead. Donations will help offset veterinary costs and provide food and supplies to those impacted most, including, but not limited to, clients of the Rural Area Veterinary Services program, Pets for Life clients and the HSUS’s nearly 400 nationwide Shelter and Rescue Partners. These organizations are our partners as we work to maintain the human-animal bond during this difficult time.
Your gift will also support our efforts to help individuals and organizations prepare and respond to this crisis and future needs related to the pandemic, our efforts to address the causes of this crisis and our future work to address its impacts on animals, plus help to increase the infrastructure and capacity of response efforts through fundraising, education and awareness spreading.
