AASAP Accepts 2015 Collaborators Summit

Clearly illustrating what collaboration is all about, individuals from eight different organizations shared the 2015 Urban Animal Collaborators Summit Award.

This year’s recipient, AASAP, is a network of agencies that includes emergency services, the veterinary community, social services, and animal shelters. These different groups work together to create options that allow victims of domestic violence to leave their situation and know their pet is safe and cared for. The need for the Pet Safekeeping Program exists in every community, and AASAP is working diligently to grow the network of partner agencies and expand the program across Alberta.

The Urban Animal Collaborators Summit recognizes the efforts of two or more organizations (service providers) that work collaboratively to create a healthier environment for urban animals.
