Feeding Pets of the Homeless® is the first and one of the few national nonprofits providing pet food and emergency veterinary care to pets that belong to homeless people.


We believe every pet deserves not to be hungry or suffer from an illness or injury.  If you are homeless, or a Veteran, and need help  caring for your pet, we can help.

Our pet food donation site volunteers support our objective of collecting pet food and pet supplies. They are working with pet food providers who have agreed to distribute pet food in those communities.

Make a Donation

Your donation can make the lives of these pets a little easier, healthier and have a full belly. Each day is a struggle for the homeless, and their pets have little recourse. We are their voice, and you can be their hero.

Evidence shows that animal companionship is fortifying and contributes to the emotional well-being of people experiencing homelessness, including encouraging owners to obtain sobriety, leave abusive relationships, and avoid incarceration.

National Alliance to End Homelessness


Feeding Pets of the Homeless® is a national non-profit that works with businesses and volunteers across the country to collect pet food and supplies for our homeless population that owns pets. Our volunteers help enlist pet food donation sites in their local communities and are advocates for keeping pets and humans together.

We need your compassion and help to continue our work as the homeless situation grows in our country. Becoming a volunteer is easy!

I am homeless and have been living in a trailer with no power, sewer or water for 2 years now. I reached out to Feeding Pets of The Homeless for my 3-year-old Male Datsun Mix named Tilikum. We have been together since he was born. Tilikum had possible ear mites and needed his vaccinations. His ears were draining red and black and he had not slept for 3 days. He was rubbing his ears, walking sideways and was in pain. When I called FPOTH, they completed an intake and verified our homeless situation. We were approved for an exam at a local Animal Hospital. They discovered that Tilikum indeed had ear mites during the ear cytology and was treated with an ear cleaning and medications during the exam. They also updated his vaccinations.Tilikum is doing much better and is expected to make a full recovery.Feeding Pets of The Homeless contributed $279. ... See MoreSee Less

The bond between a person and their pet is important to all of us. It is even more important to those that are experiencing homelessness. They are with their animals 24/7/365. Their pets provide them security and companionship. No pet, no matter who the guardian is, should be hungry or in pain.
