Pet owners call us for help, and leave their message in the appropriate mailbox. Working from home, a volunteer retrieves it, calls them back, and determines how to best help them and their pet. As a hotline volunteer, you would be aware of any special programs and pricing for spay/neuter services throughout the county. You would offer low cost vet referrals, information about vouchers or other specials, and financial aid from Pet Assistance when truly needed. You would keep simple records, such as log sheets of calls.
We have found that many of our pet help hotline callers express sheer relief upon realizing this resource is available to them.

The Pet Help Hotline addresses behavioral problems and solutions, moving or relocating questions and solutions to landlord/tenant pet rental agreements, assistance with helping people temporarily foster stray pets until adoption, alternatives to de-clawing, allergy control options, help with a stray or orphaned dog or cat, feral cat trap/neuter/return, information on finding a lost pet, introducing pets and children, and many other pet-related issues. Need a little help to get over the rough spots with your pet? Not all problems need an office or home visit. Call the pet's behavior hotline today.

Animal Advocates has a Free Pet Help Hotline for the public to help people and pets. The Pet Help Hotline provides assistance and solutions to common issues and problems in an effort to keep dogs, cats and their families together.At HomeAgain, lost pet help is also about a genuine care and concern for pet owners. When you call our hotline for lost cat help or lost dog advice, you will find caring professionals who can help you manage the stress of searching for a lost pet. We are here to offer help from the moment you report your pet missing to the moment your search ends.Hughes is now one of five students who are helping staff a pet loss hotline. Between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, one of them will answer calls from pet owners who are mourning. "It's kind of a taboo. Losing a pet isn't the same as losing a family member," Hughes said. "People don't know how to treat it, and how to treat people that are grieving for it."Part of being a dog or cat owner is knowing that sometimes disaster strikes, and part of the HomeAgain commitment to protect your cat or dog is being there with trained help when it does. Our pet emergency hotline is in place to manage difficult situations that come up when you least expect them.A pet emergency can strike outside of your primary veterinarian's office hours or far from home. Unless you are a trained professional, it can be hard to know what you should and shouldn't do to help your dog or cat. Your annual HomeAgain membership includes free, anytime telephone assistance provided by licensed ASPCA veterinarians-- a $65 value per call. Whenever disaster strikes, call 888-HomeAgain to reach our pet Emergency Medical Hotline and get potentially life-saving advice when you need it most.Remember, your situation is unique, and these tips may not work for everyone. You can always call or chat with an advocate at The Hotline for more information. We can help you brainstorm ways to keep yourself and your pets safe!
