We understand the comfort and love that your pet provides. If you are homeless and need help for your companion pet, we may be able to assist you in getting food for your pet, emergency veterinary care, and wellness care.
We have partnered with Pet Food Providers across the nation that include food banks, pantries, soup kitchens and shelters. If you need food or supplies for your pet, please search our resources map for a Pet Food Provider near you and call to see if they have supplies on hand.
Call or email us to find a location and date of an upcoming wellness clinic near you.
Emergency Veterinary Care
Everyone hopes their pets will live a long, healthy life. The reality is, sometimes our pets get sick or injured, and sometimes very seriously. Medical treatment can be expensive and costs just too much for homeless pet owners. If your pet experiences illness or injury, please call us. 775-841-7463. One of our Case Managers will conduct an interview to see if you and your pet qualify for assistance through our Emergency Vet Care Program. If you are eligible, the Case Manager will approve an exam and help you make an appointment for your pet at a local hospital or clinic. While there is no charge to you, we appreciate any payment towards the invoice made to the hospital at the time of the visit.
When Feeding Pets of the Homeless® cannot help, we will direct you to one of the many other organizations that may be able to help with your individual needs. Many organizations have specific missions and criteria that need to be met to qualify. Some resources are specific to breed. Local animal shelters or local chapters of the Humane Society may also be able to help, or know of other organizations local to you. Many SPCA’s offer low cost or free spay/neutering and vaccines.
