Our Pets for Life program provides free services like vaccinations, spay/neuter surgeries, training classes, pet supplies, food, and one-on-one advice to tens of thousands of animals and the people who care for them.
Our Humane Wildlife Services program provides wildlife conflict resolution in urban areas. This fee-for-service program allows humane-minded homeowners to call in an experienced team to solve their wildlife-related problems and not cause any harm to animals. The Wildlife Protection Department has helped rescue hundreds of gopher tortoises from construction sites - a meticulous project that takes more than a month's work at each site. We have relocated and rescued hundreds of prairie dogs, and provide practical solutions to solve humane wildlife conflicts with a range of species, including deer, coyotes, beavers, and Canada geese, resulting in countless lives saved annually.
The HSUS also conducts training for shelter professionals at our annual Animal Care Expo. And our ongoing Rethinking the Cat symposia train cat advocates, shelter and rescue workers, animal control and municipal officials on community cat management, effective TNR programs, and capacity and health issues in animal care facilities.
