With increasing pressures on cost of living and lack of availability of secure housing, supporting vulnerable communities has never been more important. Co-sheltering of people and their pets in crisis accommodation, shelters for survivors of domestic violence and disaster relief accommodation can help support the human animal bond and prevent surrender of animals to shelters. What is co-sheltering, what is it’s status in Australia right now and how can we as animal and human welfare advocates in our communities support this model of care?
