Pet Giving Network Portal Now Open, Enabling Pet Care Companies to Help Pets with Coordinated Disaster Relief
Date:8/16/2021

The Human Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI) announced today that The Pet Giving Network, launched in collaboration with the Greater Good Charities, is open and ready to serve as a vital resource to connect the pet care community with frontline rescuers helping pets in need. Those interested in becoming Pet Giving Network Partners can sign-up today at http://www.habri.org/giving-network.

“With wildfires raging and hurricane season upon us, it is important to recognize that pets are vulnerable, and resources allocated to helping pets threatened by disasters are often scarce. When pets are in danger so are their owners, which is why it is so important for the pet care community to be organized and ready to provide help,” said Steven Feldman, president of HABRI.

The Pet Giving Network allows interested companies and organizations to register as Pet Giving Network Partners, which connects them to a system of action alerts about specific pet needs. Partners can offer to donate supplies and resources, which are then reviewed by a member of the Pet Giving Network team so the donation can be connected to rescuers on the ground. After matching these donated supplies to a recipient, Greater Good Charities coordinates with entities in regions affected by natural disaster ensure that supplies are delivered where and when they are needed, avoiding unnecessary waste and allowing organizations around the country to act as a united pet care community when disaster strikes.

“The World Pet Association couldn’t think of a better time than during SuperZoo 2021 to spotlight the Pet Giving Network,” said Vic Mason, President of the World Pet Association. “We look forward to working with our members and HABRI to support this important initiative, which will save the lives of many pets in need.”

“The Pet Giving Network is a wonderful example of the good that the pet care community can do when we work together,” said Steve King, President and CEO of the American Pet Products Association (APPA). “We are especially grateful for Julia Fidenzio-Alicea, APPA Vice President of Government Affairs & General Counsel, who has been instrumental in launching the Pet Giving Network and making it an ongoing success.”

The Pet Giving Network has already made a real difference in times of crisis. In 2017, dozens of pet care companies rallied together to provide food, supplies and medicine to rescue organizations, evacuation facilities and pet owners in the wake of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

“HABRI is proud to be working alongside the World Pet Association (WPA), American Pet Products Association (APPA), and the Pet Industry Distributors Association (PIDA) and their members who have a strong and longstanding commitment to supporting this important initiative,” added Steven Feldman. “Together, we will work to strengthen and support the human-animal bond, especially in times of disaster.”
