Pets of the Homeless is a nonprofit group that has been assisting homeless people in providing food and medical aid to their pets. It has been doing its mission for over 14 years, and its main mission is to be the helping hand of many homeless people who have pets and are finding it hard to feed their pets, much more medical help.
Genevieve Frederick is the group’s founder, and according to her, the nonprofit group started with just getting donations from people. Most of them were food, which they gave to homeless individuals and to their pets. Through time, the group saw that the homeless pet owners also were having a hard time giving their pets the medical care that they needed.
At present, the nonprofit group has more than 440 sites for donations found all over the US. These are places where homeless people can get food for themselves and for their pets as well. Aside from the food, the donation sites also provide emergency help for the pets. So far, the sites have helped many pets who came with parvo, broken bones, and many medical conditions.
It is interesting, too, because the nonprofit group also has been preparing many pet crates, and the group is donating them to various shelters that house homeless people. Some may think that this is just a small thing and not really a huge deal, but homeless people and their pets find these to be a really big help. Now, the homeless can have their pets with them when they sleep at shelters since many shelters do not allow pets that do not have their own crates.
This is a really great thing that the Pets of the Homeless is doing. They really understand just how important the dogs and other pets are to the homeless.
