I am his only friend.

And he is mine. When there was no one else there for me, he was. And now when there is no one else there for him, I am.

A pet's love is unconditional and non-judgemental.

The bond between pets and people isn't dependent on having a roof. Pets of the Homeless provides relief to homeless people and their pets in the form of food, resources, emergency care and support.

Five to ten percent of homeless people have dogs and/or cats. In some areas of the country the rate is as high as 25%
The majority of homeless shelters don't allow pets, leaving people to choose between shelter or giving up their best friend
Animals can provide the homeless with security from other homeless or from those that discriminate against the homeless with beatings or from others who may steal their modest possessions.

I keep her safe and warm at night

When the only friend you have is sick and you have no resources to help them, it can be extremely frightening. A woman living in a shelter in San Diego found herself in this situation when Ramen was not eating and showing some distress. Pets of the homeless stepped in to keep these friends together.

I'm the only one who doesn't judge.

Greta is a little dog who gives a lot of love to her owner, a woman living in a shelter in the San Diego, CA area. One day Greta’s back legs gave out and she couldn’t walk. Pets of the Homeless received a call to see if we could help this old gal get back up to speed.
