Beyond Fences is above all a people-centered organization. Companion animals are always a companion to a person, so we focus on serving people and building long lasting relationships. We also recognize the immense barriers that exist for many people in accessing services for their pets due to spatial inequality, systemic bias and institutional discrimination. Everyone’s lives can be enhanced by a pet and everyone who so chooses should have the opportunity to experience the unconditional love and meaningful relationship a pet brings. We’re doing our part to support and honor that love.
