Their Pets Mean Everything to the Homeless Population!

As difficult things are happening in the world, more and more people are becoming homeless. A lot of them have animals, usually dogs. They need supplies and resources in order to keep their animal with them. So many of them know that Chain of Hope will help them when they call.

We try and get these animals spayed and neutered and vaccinated at our expense. We arrange meeting places with the homeless and transport the animals to and from the vet for services. We answer many calls for food and medical issues with pets of homeless people. They have no money to take them to the vet themselves, but they now know that they can call Chain of Hope for help, instead of letting their animal suffer unnecessarily. They know that we care and we will respond.

Sometimes, after we’ve been involved for a while, a homeless person may decide that they can’t hang onto their animal on the streets any longer and they will eventually relinquish the animal to us. We keep good relationships in many of the homeless camps, so that we are there for the long haul, as their lives fluctuate.

We find that when we do get an animal from a homeless person, they often end up getting another one-usually a stray off the streets. These animals provide the desired companionship that is often missing from a homeless person’s life. Animals love unconditionally and can help get a person through a lot of turmoil, just by being there. We know many people that make sure their animal has something to eat before they do. They will self-sacrifice for their best friend!

Chain of Hope is committed to helping the homeless population with their animals. The animals deserve the help and so do the people. Thank you for enabling us to help the homeless with their beloved companions. Sometimes, that’s all they have in the world and their pet means everything to them.
