Our Strategic Initiatives address societal issues closest to our hearts, often intersecting human and animal needs. We understand these issues are complicated, and consciously enter them through partnerships with specialized human service organizations to develop truly additive and collaborative programs. We don't have all the answers to these complicated problems. We do, however, have the people, knowledge and will to help improve the lives of people and pets everywhere.

Money can’t solve all the world’s problems. When used strategically, however, it can create systems, opportunities and incentives for real solutions.

We critically analyze and expect our investments to continuously grow, develop lasting impact, and help millions of people and pets for years to come.
