Pets of the Homeless
Pets of the Homeless is a 501C3 nonprofit volunteer organization that provides pet food and veterinary care to the homeless and less fortunate in the local communities across the United States and Canada. Our member collection sites accept donated pet food from people like you.They then deliver it to distributing organizations (food banks, homeless shelter and/or soups kitchens) which have agreed to distribute the pet food to the homeless and poor. We award grants to veterinarians that go to where the homeless congregate and provide veterinary care such as vaccines, spay/neuter and other needed treatments. We award grants to homeless shelters that will allow pets sanctuary with their owners. Recruiting collection sites and distributing organizations as well as awarding grants are a small part of what we do. We answer hundreds of requests for information on how to start a pet food pantry, how to volunteer, how to help a homeless person on the street, how to donate if there isn't a collection site in the area, where to take pet food, and where to get pet food or veterinary care. We work with school children, Scouts, Churches and companies who want to help. Between 5% to 10% of homeless people have dogs and/or cats. In some areas of the country the rate is as high as 24%. Most people who experience homelessness are homeless for a short period of time and need help finding housing or a rent subsidy. Unfortunately for those with pets it becomes more difficult. Our Mission: Through Pets of the Homeless also known as Feeding Pets of the Homeless, we will do our part in helping to reduce hunger in pets belonging to the homeless and the less fortunate and provide veterinary care for those pets in communities across the country.
