FEEDING DOGS IN NEED (AND CATS TOO!)
Our Mission is to ensure that no pet is surrendered due to a lack of resources on the part of their human.
In 2015 Southern Nevada was the home of 7,509 homeless people. Our rate of homelessness was 30.8% greater that the National Average. Additionally, nearly half of our homeless population lives unsheltered – that is 20% greater than the rest of the nation. With such drastic rates of homelessness we are compelled to do what we can.
We understand that the homeless epidemic will not end over night, but hope that we can fill the days journey with just a bit more light. Many of the efforts in place to combat pet homelessness involve spay & neutering, fostering & shelters. We sought a different solution, a more preventative approach to ensure that pets are not surrendered in the first place. We strive to provide assistance to pets of homeless and those in need by offering food & supply distributions, assisting with the funding of spay & neutering of pets, meeting the needs of special food diets, medications, and vaccinations, and working to provide temporary housing for pets. In addition to offereing material support, we find that our efforts to help humans care for their companions offer a sense of dignity, comfort, and hope.
