The HSUS offers many services to shelters and rescue groups, including operational assistance, training, and legislative resources. We also host the largest international conference and trade show in the animal care field, providing education and training in topics essential to animal care and control professionals, emergency responders, feral/community cat caretakers, and rescue volunteers.


We also help other animal lovers—people with pets, activists, and civic leaders—discover what shelters and rescue groups do for communities and work with them to reduce the number of homeless, unwanted, and abused animals.

The Shelter Pet Project: Meet Cute

People who don't love shelter and rescue pets probably haven't met them. The Shelter Pet Project's new videos give people the chance to meet some adorable adopted pets. And animalsheltering.org gives groups tips on using the videos and other materials.
