Organized by: Homeless WithPets.org
Please help us continue building compassion in our community in Sonoma County,CA.
HomelessWithPets works with people living homeless with their animal companions. Refusing to trade their animal companion for services and shelter means that people live in vehicles, camps or on the streets. It’s a tough life. Homeless people with pets are some of the most under-served people in our communities.
We believe in the importance of the human-animal bond and work with both ends of the leash.
We help people look after their animals by providing donated food and other animal items. We help improve animal safety with pet first aid, basic animal care and reward-based dog training. We are working with volunteer veterinarians and groomers to help dogs, cats and birds stay healthy.
At the human end of the leash we spend time listening, helping where we can and signposting people to services.
HomelessWithPets.Org is ready to do more and this means having a base to operate from.
Our fund-raising plea is for the purchase of a pre-owned trailer that we can remodel as a classroom, place to groom animals and from which our volunteer veterinarians can run basic wellness clinics.
Our HomelessWithPets trailer will be a readily available resource in the homeless community, providing food, helping people access veterinary help and providing day-care for pets so homeless people make and attend appointments to support their own well-being knowing that their animal is being well-looked after.
$15, 385 will get us a trailer, modify it for our needs and begin equipping it with some basic kit for animal wellness and grooming, and items for our human training workshops.
Please help us with any amount that you can spare.
Thank you for changing the lives of people and animals who would otherwise not get care and support.
