PACT for Animals - Virtual Presentation

PACT for Animals  is a champion of the Human-Animal Bond. PACT gives peace of mind to hospital patients, military personnel, and others by placing their pets in temporary foster homes until their owners can be reunited with the companion animals they love.

Every year, hundreds of thousands of companion animals are surrendered into animal shelters due to temporary emergency crises. By providing access to vetted foster homes for animals until their human companions can be reunited, PACT reduces the number of animals in animal shelters and gives the owners peace of mind that their best friends will not be lost, abused, or euthanized.

All PACT programs are free! PACT staff carefully screen every case to find the perfect match of foster home and in-need pet. Foster families are in regular contact with the deployed or hospitalized owners providing regular updates, including photos, messages and videos of their beloved pets. For many people in a hospital bed, on deployment, or in another crisis situation, these emails are a comfort for their raw nerves, and the best thing they see all week! When people are fighting for their health or fighting for our country, no one should have to worry about the safety of their best friends. Our foster programs save lives with every successful crisis rescue, foster placement, and joyful reunion. At PACT, we believe in keeping families together and building strong communities willing to protect the Human-Animal Bond. Our volunteers truly understand the definition of unconditional love. They open their hearts and their homes to strangers in need of a helping hand.

Our work is necessary in the animal welfare community and we sincerely love what we do to contribute to the ultimate goal of a no-kill nation!
