Communications and Community Outreach

  • Messaging Spay/Neuter: Lessons from the Gulf Coast Spay/Neuter Campaign (The Humane Society of the United States) by Heather Cammisa, 2009. This report is the culmination of a two-year effort to understand what approaches are most effective to motivate people to spay or neuter their pets. Although the research occurred in Louisiana and Mississippi, U.S.A, this report can provide a model for those outside the United States to conduct their own research on this topic.
  • Pets for Life (The Humane Society of the United States), a program that reaches out to people in under-served communities in the United States to extend free pet care resources, services, and information. The Pets for Life Community Outreach Toolkit provides downloadable tools for starting a similar program in your community.
  • Report on the Shelter Pet Project (DRAFTFCB, AdCouncil, Maddie's Fund and The Humane Society of the United States), this presentation describes the goals, strategy, and research behind the Shelter Pet Project, a U.S. media campaign focused on increasing the number of adoptions from shelters.
