COVID-19 Help for CA People & Pets

PODCAST (8:19) — Our good friend, Sabrina Ashjian, California state director of the Humane Society of the United States, is always a great guest and recently asked to come back on the show to discuss her organization’s work on COVID-19 help for people and pets in our state.

We talk about:

  • People’s wonderful response to the need for fosters and adopters
  • How pets and people are great sources of love and support for each other during this crisis
  • Innovative work by shelters and rescues to make animals available to new homes during social distancing and closures
  • My concern that as time goes on the current enthusiasm may wane
  • The need of special help for people who are sick, or old, or have no money
  • Free HSUS COVID resource kit at
  • Her program to deliver “care packages” to animal workers and first responders (you can help!) and support for shelter wish lists
  • Pairing pet and human food banks for one-stop client support and building no-contact deliveries where needed

Her email is if you can offer help, need help, or want to volunteer. HSUS is an important partner in producing our program. Please support them.
