Educate individuals on pet care services and veterinarian access!
Most human shelters do not allow pets. Over 25% of our unsheltered people have pets. Leaving them to decide between shelter or remaining on the street with their beloved furry kid. Most will remain on the streets. Our pet support in interim shelters allows shelters to allow pets. With your help, we can continue helping people on the streets to enter our shelters together with their pets!
