Advocacy Alert -- US Interagency Council on Homelessness calls for feedback

The US Interagency's Council on Homelessness' (USICH) current federal strategic plan to prevent and end homelessness, Opening Doors, has been opened to feedback from stakeholders across federal, national, state and local organizations. 

If you are a representative of a group that works with or advocates for the homeless, please email USICH to request that their strategy address the unequal access to shelter and housing experienced by homeless pet owners. Please remember to include specific recommendations, such as including the promotion of pet-friendly practices in shelters and housing programs, and strengthening relationships with animal welfare organizations to address the intersecting needs of animals and people.

To send your comments to USICH, review their Participation Guide and use their Recommendations Form.
