Ready to Save More Dogs' and Cats' Lives?

Are you ready to work with others in your community to ensure cats and dogs don’t die unnecessarily in shelters. We’re thrilled to have you

The 2025 Action Team is a community-driven, grassroots movement to help save more dogs and cats across the country. We work with local advocates like you to make sustainable changes that save lives.

Ready to work together to start saving more lives? Find a local action team near you or start an action team.

When you join the 2025 Action Team, you become part of a group of advocates who believe that all pets and people deserve compassion, and that — when we work together — we can create real change for dogs and cats in need.

Anyone can be an advocate for pets as long as they are willing to learn, listen and connect with others. By working together with others in your community, you can inspire and create a local movement, and help save the lives of more dogs and cats. Your voice is more powerful than you think.
