When animal services agencies connect with other organizations, both benefit to better support people and pets where they live. Creating relationships with human and environmental organizations that may not traditionally help animals offers a more holistic approach to care. That’s why the February Maddie’s® Pet Forum resource drive is focused on community partnerships!
