Summary

Feeding Pets of the Homeless believes in the healing power of companion pets and of the human/animal bond, which is very important in the lives of people experiencing homelessness. They find solace, protection, and companionship through their pets. They care for their pets with limited resources so they themselves have less. Our task, nationwide, is to provide basic emergency veterinary care to their pets and thus relieve the anguish and anxiety of those guardians who cannot provide for them.

Challenge

Each year, 3.5 million experience homelessness in America according to the National Coalition for the Homeless. We estimate that over 25% of homeless have pets, many are service animals. Over 62% of our clients are women and 38% are survivors of domestic violence. The need for veterinary care is at an all-time high when a pet is injured or ill. Each year this project costs over $1,000,000.

Solution

Our nonprofit is important to the people that experience homelessness and need veterinary care for their companion pets when they are ill or injured pets. In some cases, the homeless survive with the daily responsibility of pet guardianship. There is scientific evidence that shows animals are good for us. From depression and post-traumatic stress disorder to heart health and autism, the human-animal bond has a powerful, measurable impact on people's lives.

Long-Term Impact

Everyday we receive calls to end the pain and suffering of pets that belong to the homeless. One pet at a time: we strive to reunite healthy, pain free pets back to their homeless guardians. In doing so we are also keeping communities safe from diseases. We are keeping the bond of animal/human love alive with your donation.
