PetSmart and Salem IHN: Working to Keep Families Together
PetSmart has formed a partnership with Salem Interfaith Hospitality Network to create PetSmart Promise, a program that provides options for homeless families to keep their pets while on the road to a sustainable home. The partnership expanded the existing Salem IHN Day Center to include a facility for families who are in transition or temporarily homeless to keep their dog or cat at the shelter with them. The families are involved in caring for their pets and are able to keep their family – including their four-legged members – together during a difficult time.
