National Resources

Overview

  • A small number of national organizations are providing information and training on the Link.
  • Many Link programs are being carried out at the local level by local organizations.
  • Many national and local organizations provide information and resources on the Link but do not offer programs.
  • In general, animal-focused organizations (e.g., humane socieities and animal advocacy organizations) seem to be taking the lead on the Link more than human services organizations.
