Associated with  Animal Welfare Professionals

Join us on Thursday, December 21 at 12n Pacific / 3pm Eastern for a Q&A with housing rights expert @Dianne Prado of HEART LA.  

Hear about the three most important things you can ask and do to help a person with a pet who is facing housing insecurity or unable to find housing because of their pet. This will be a highly interactive discussion, so bring your questions for Dianne to answer as well as any issues or topics related to pets and housing that you have for her.

Attendees will also
- learn the basic eviction process
- leave with concrete steps to help a person remain housed with their pet
- debunk myths that either scare people into surrendering their pets because of housing insecurity or prevent people from fostering or adopting a pet
