Michelson Found Animals Pet-Inclusive Housing Initiative

Mockingbird Sponsor


In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, when so many animals were found without a home, Dr. Gary Michelson started the Found Animals Foundation, which led to the microchipping and adoption of millions of pets. With a commitment to continue keeping pets and people together, he turned to the next scalable solution: increasing the availability of truly pet-inclusive rental housing.

Teaming up with the Human Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI), the Michelson Found Animals Foundation commissioned a much-needed survey to better understand the issues and find the right solutions in order to keep animals with their owners.

From these findings, the Pet-Inclusive Housing Initiative has developed resources and partnerships that support pet owners, as well as showcase the value of pet-inclusive rental housing with rental owners and operators. To learn more, visit petsandhousing.org
