ASI has been invited to be part of the Co-sheltering Collaborative, a new effort to identify and promote best practices for homeless people and their companion animals. Our Director of Human-Animal Programs, Dr. Lisa Lunghofer, participated in the collaborative’s first work group in late July. The initiative is being led by My Dog is My Home, a nonprofit whose mission is to increase access to shelter and housing for people experiencing homelessness with companion animals. Current collaborative members include four nonprofits working to end homelessness in the greater Los Angeles, CA, metro area. The group will be working to share expertise, showcase examples of innovative programs that address human and animal sheltering needs, and develop a road map for best practices in co-sheltering.
