Join Dr. Ellen Jefferson, Kristen Hassen and Lisa LaFontaine of the American Pets Alive! Human Animal Support Services Project (HASS) executive committee, for an open, virtual town hall to discuss the Human Animal Support Services project and how it could benefit the people and animals of Austin & Travis County. The purpose of this Town Hall is to create more understanding around this project and clear up any confusion around what the implementation of HASS in Austin would look like.

*Austin is currently not a pilot shelter of the HASS project.

The first half of the town hall will begin with a presentation explaining the development of the HASS model of animal sheltering and the coalition of 30 other animal shelters participating. The second half will be open for questions from attendees. Questions will be taken in advance. If there is additional time leftover, we will open the floor to attendees to submit questions live via the chat feature.

To submit a question in advance, please use this form: https://forms.gle/DNya9YCqDGBbL4849
