Community Foundation of Western Nevada

Thank you for your interest in Feeding Pets of the Homeless®.

Our Mission:
Feeding Pets of the Homeless® believes in the healing power of companion pets and of the human/animal bond which is very important in the lives of many homeless. They find solace, protection and companionship through their pets. They care for their pets on limited resources so they themselves have less. Our task, nationwide, is to feed and provide basic emergency veterinary care to their pets and thus relieve the anguish and anxiety of the homeless who cannot provide for their pets.

This is what you can make happen with a grant of $1,000 to $10,000.

A grant of $1,000 will cover the average cost of three emergency veterinary cases of pets whose guardian is homeless.

A grant of $2,000 will cover the sponsorship of a Wellness Clinic.

A grant of $5,000 will cover five pets with emergency veterinary care at our maximum coverage.

A grant of $10,000 will cover the cost of an independent financial audit.

Our current funding priorities are:

  1. Emergency Veterinary Care
  2. Wellness Clinics
  3. General operating expenses and program support
