Pets Together


Virtually bringing pets and people together to reduce social isolation and loneliness

Social isolation and loneliness are critical public health threats, especially for older adults and those who live in group settings. In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, that threat is increasing. As we all stay home to protect one another from the virus, we must also protect each other from these public health risks.




Using video chat services like Zoom, Pets Together lets people virtually visit with pets and their owners to stay socially connected and engaged.
