COVID-19 Info for Animal Welfare Workers

  • Sign up for this daily digest for animal welfare professionals. National animal welfare non-profits, veterinary shelter medicine programs, and the National Animal Control Association have committed to compiling and sharing accurate, timely COVID-19 information through this daily digest, rather than burdening your already-too-full email in-box.
  • The North American COVID-19 Communication Task Force, a collaboration of animal welfare organizations across the U.S and Canada, has created accurate and shareable infographics for you to use when messaging a variety of audiences—the pet parents in your community, shelter staff, law enforcement, and your foster families. Use as is or have your in-house design team tweak them to make them your own.



  • Forbes has compiled a list of banks offering mortgage relief to customers. Be sure to reach out directly to your mortgage provider prior to taking any action.
