Crisis Boarding

East Bay SPCA’s Hold for Home (H4H) program is for pet parents experiencing a short-term crisis creating a temporary inability to care for their pets. The goal of the program is to provide the pet owner time to focus on and work towards stabilizing the current crises and ultimately be reunited.

Our Humane Advocacy (HA) team will act as the pet’s case manager during the stay. We do require that the pet owner also has a case manager assisting them in stabilizing their situation. The pet owner's case manager must be comfortable communicating with HA weekly on the pet’s health/behavior during their stay as well as the owner’s path towards stabilization and reunion.
