F eeding Pets of the Homeless™ is the first and only national animal organization focused completely on feeding and providing emergency veterinary care to pets that belong to homeless people.
A note from our Founder
I hope this message finds you safe and healthy during these difficult and uncertain days. I know you are concerned for our clients and care about the pets of those who are homeless. 

We are closely following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and their updates, including this guidance saying that encampment residents and those living outdoors should not be forced into a congregate shelter or further displaced. For the time being, it is much safer for un-housed folks to stay in their tents, and for cities to provide restrooms and hand washing stations.

Together, we are facing a truly unprecedented situation. And together we will get through this. The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting us all: our employees and their families, the nonprofit community, our neighbors, and the homeless population.

While our desks may be empty, know that we are keeping up with the many calls for emergency care for pets still coming in from the homeless community.

Your help in any amount at this time will ensure that pets of the homeless who are the most at risk get our help.

Thank you for your trust in Feeding Pets of the Homeless™. We hope that you are safe and stay well.

Stockton, CA
January 2020
In January, Feeding Pets of the Homeless™ received a call from a disabled woman living in an RV. She receives SSI but has bounced between a parking lot and a maintenance yard in Stockton, CA for the past six years with no utilities, but sometimes is allowed to hook up a hose for water. She called us about Rev, her 9-year-old male domestic long hair tuxedo cat. Rev was in pain. She took him to the vet, and they said he might have crystals in his bladder, and she couldn’t afford to have diagnostics done. She called seeking our help. After verifying her homelessness with the Salvation Army, we approved an examination at a partner animal hospital in the area.

Atascadero, CA  
February 2020
 We received a call for emergency vet care from a homeless carpenter that had been living in his van for the past eight months, as he was headed to San Francisco, CA from Los Angeles for work. His dog Lex, a 7-year-old male French Bulldog, hadn’t urinated in 24 hours. Poor Lex had urine dripping from him. After a quick verification, we approved an examination at a partner pet center in the area.

Helping During COVID-19

During this time surrounding COVID-19, food banks still need pet food. We ask you, our loyal supporters, to order dog/cat food online and have it shipped to a local food bank. No need to go to a store!
