Preparing Shelter Workers for Animals On-Site

In partnership with the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, My Dog is My Home will be providing customized training to five emergency shelter and bridge housing providers who recently expanded to accommodate animals on-site. While the shelter and bridge housing workers have dedicated their careers to working with people, animals are new territory for many of these shelter staff. The customized trainings will cover a range of topics identified through conversations between My Dog is My Home, Bark Avenue Foundation, and the shelter and bridge housing programs' management. Trainings will be held March 26-30.

We thank Bark Avenue Foundation for their generous support of our work in Los Angeles.
