Feeding Pets of the Homeless
Brief Description Feeding Pets of the Homeless is a nonprofit member organization that provides pet food and veterinarian care to the homeless and less fortunate in local communities across the United States and Canada. Our members collect pet food and deliver it to food banks and/or soups kitchens which have agreed to distribute the food to the homeless and impoverished. Members and organizations are listed at www.petsofhomeless.org under “Members”. The information is updated daily. At our main office we coordinate and support our members. We accept cash donations; distribute grant applications to veterinarians and other nonprofit organizations that meet our objectives; review and award grants.
Mission Statement: Through Feeding Pets of the Homeless, we will do our part to help reduce hunger in pets that belong to the homeless and the less fortunate and provide medical care for those pets in communities across the country. We believe in the healing power of companion pets and of the human/animal bond which is very important to life. Our actions include the following: • Promoting to veterinarians and pet related businesses the importance of joining the program • Speaking out on the issue of pets of homeless and the disadvantaged • Campaigning to food distributing organizations the importance of distributing pet food to the less fortunate • Providing grants to licensed veterinarians and other nonprofit organizations that meet our objectives to administer medical care to pets of the homeless.
