One Family Welfare

Safety For Animals & People In Crisis

If you are a pet owner in crisis, you are not alone.

Animal welfare is directly linked to human welfare. When a life crisis affects a pet owner, their companion animal is likely to feel the effects too. Extending compassion to both humans and animals is integral in ensuring that all members of the family stay safe in times of crisis.

The One Family Welfare department provides various services to pet owners in crisis, including but not limited to:

  • Pet Safekeeping Program
  • Crisis Care Program
  • Safety Planning
  • Crisis intervention
  • Community Resources and Referrals
  • Animal Protection Service Collaboration
  • Community Outreach Education
  • Confidential Support

We provide services to anyone affected by crisis regardless of situation, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity or culture.
