The Urgent Care Program: Community-Supported Emergency Foster Care

Imagine having to choose between securing a place to live or caring for your cat?
Imagine feeling you must decline necessary medical treatment because you have no one to look after your dog?
Imagine staying in an unsafe environment because you worry that your pet may be injured or neglected?

Now, imagine you didn't have to choose.

Please join us to hear about our Urgent Care program!

In this webinar we will discuss how we offer response-based and preventative urgent foster program. We will raise awareness of how systemic barriers such as poverty, violence, vulnerability and homelessness impact marginalized pet owners and why access to a program such as Urgent Care is of need and benefit.

We will discuss the concept of Trauma Informed Care and how those principles can be leveraged to create meaningful relationships with clients and community members.

Staff and Foster Parents play an integral role in the success of this program. Learn howyou can support our community members, and their pets, experiencing crisis.
