The Urban Paw team recently held a donation drive for pet food for an amazing organization called the Pets of the Homeless. Pets of the Homeless is the only national animal organization focused completely on feeding and providing emergency veterinary care to the pets of the homeless.
With such a large population of the homeless in Los Angeles, our team wanted to come together and support this innovative organization! Like many, we had no idea how many homeless Americans were pet owners. Out of 3.5 million homeless Americans, between 5% and 10% have dogs and/or cats. In some areas of the country the rate is as high as 24%. Pets of the Homeless works with individuals and businesses all around the U.S. and Canada to collect donations and distribute them to those in need.
Want to donate?
With a $25 gift they can feed and provide veterinary care for 3 dogs a day. With $50 they can help over 6 dogs and $100 will help 8 dogs for a day.
