Did you know that between 5% to 10% of homeless people have dogs and/or cats. In some areas of the country the rate is as high as 24%.
Most people who experience homelessness are homeless for a short period of time, and need help finding housing or a rent subsidy. Unfortunately for those with pets it becomes more difficult.
You can make a difference to someone who has a loving loyal companion pet.
Shelters are starting to carry pet food that can be requested with people food, and provide vet service and vaccinations.
I want to collect 200 pounds of pet food for our local shelter “Loaves and Fishes” for the holiday. Would you help?
I am asking for a quart-sized ziploc bag of dog or cat food from all of my readers. Those of us with pets have food in the house. If you’d rather send a buck or two, that would help too.
Send your pet food by December 15th to:
Food for Homeless Pets

Your donation means more than you know.
