The ASPCA safety net programs provide alternatives to pet parents who may otherwise surrender their pets to animal shelters.

Areas of focus for safety net programs vary, ranging from pet food banks to financial assistance for veterinary bills to temporary housing for animals.

Here are a few methods employed by safety net programs to help keep pets in their homes:

  • Pet food banks
  • Community vaccination clinics, spay/neuter services, collars, tags and flea treatment.
  • Behavior classes
  • Temporary housing for animals whose pet parents are in crisis, such as in cases of homelessness or domestic violence.
  • Assistance with housing issues, such as helping to pay a pet deposit fee.
