Human Dimension

Human Dimensions of Animal Welfare initiatives will encompass animal advocates, animal guardians, veterinary professionals, and animal shelter workers. The Office's priorities in this area include:

  • Being the liaison between all of these communities and City Hall.
  • Increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the animal advocacy movement and animal welfare professions.
  • Combating high suicide rates in the veterinary and animal welfare professions by extending the reach of the City's free mental health resources to these communities.
  • Connecting vegan and vegetarian M/WBEs to City procurement opportunities to help us reach our meat reduction goals.
