Feeding Pets of the Homeless received nonprofit status in July 2008 as a public charity.
We provide pet food and veterinary care to the homeless and less fortunate in local communities across the United States and a few in Canada. The pet food is collected by our donation sites and then delivered to food banks, soup kitchens, homeless shelters and camps.
Accordingly, we have:
We sponsor veterinarians and other nonprofit organizations that meet our objectives of providing veterinary care to pets of the homeless whether through our Wellness Clinics or Emergency Veterinary Care.
And we provide pet sleeping crates to homeless shelters so the homeless can bring their pets in with them and receive social services.
There are 3.5 million homeless in America and more every day facing homelessness.
We estimate as many as 10-25% of those 3.5 million homeless have pets.
Many people are facing homelessness for many reasons and the situation is getting worse with COVID and pending evictions.
The need for pet food and veterinary care is at an all-time high.
Pets of the homeless are nonjudgmental, offer comfort, and provide an emotional bond of loyalty. In some cases, they provide the homeless protection and keep them warm. We believe in the healing power of pets and of the human/animal bond which is very important to life. In some cases, the homeless survive with the daily love and responsibility of pet guardianship. The tragic part, pets of the homeless sometimes suffer from illness or injury. Our organization is important to the homeless that we serve.
Your donation will be used where it is most needed.
