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.

Emergency Veterinary Care

Case managers are available to take new cases M-F 9am – 3pm PST.

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.
We do not take new emergency calls after hours or on weekends. Leave a message and a case manager will return your call the next business day. We have case managers working remotely and may be calling you back from a private number, so be sure to answer your phone. If your emergency cannot wait, please reach out to other organizations listed on our State and National resources pages.

Other Resources

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.

I was able to raise over $1,000 through sales and donations." - JoshuaCongratulations on your achievements, Joshua!If you would like to host a fundraiser for Feeding Pets of the Homeless, fill out the volunteer form on our website: ...
