In response to the coronavirus crisis, the Humane Society of the United States established the COVID-19 Relief Fund to help keep pets with their people. Contributions to the fund are being used to provide veterinary care, pet food, horse feed and animal care supplies, as well as other costs related to caring for animals during the outbreak. The funds are being dispersed across the country.

Grant recipients to date

These funds will enable us to provide more pet food, pet supplies and medical care to our Altus clients during the coronavirus outbreak. Our community is suffering right now—especially families that already had limited access to pet care resources. We’re doing everything possible to help keep pets in the loving homes they already have.

Our staff morale has been so low, this grant couldn’t have come at a better time. Our team and Board of Directors are thrilled. [...] We are very worried for people and their pets and grateful to [the] HSUS for a grant that will enable us to provide more support during this crisis.
