We also ask you to put Pets of the Homeless in your heart this Valentine’s Day.
To think about pets of the homeless, we remember they are without a home and go where the homeless go. They can’t speak for themselves to say they’re hungry, thirsty or need a comfortable place to lie down.
Pets of the Homeless volunteers make every effort to find places willing to become a collection site for donated pet food & supplies. Any willing business, church, veterinarian’s office, etc. can become a collection site where pet food and supplies can be dropped off.
Volunteers at distribution centers repackage pet food into gallon or quart plastic bags because they are easier for the homeless to take with them.
Any willing soup kitchen, thrift store, homeless shelter or place where the homeless congregate can become a Distribution Center. This is where the pet food & supplies are given to the homeless with pets.
Local, volunteer veterinarians are an essential part of the Pets of the Homeless organization. They volunteer their time to vaccinate, spay/neuter, and treat pets of the homeless. Generous donors make our grant program possible. Grants helps defray some of the costs of providing these services.
“You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.” -John Wooden
Happy Valentine’s Day
OK San Diegans, ready for unconditional love for Valentine’s Day? The San Diego Humane Society has a deal for you, from now until February 14th all adoption fees are just $14. See all the Valentines here. Shelter pets are spayed/neutered and up to date on shots. They have bunnies, too.
Please be responsible pet owners and make sure you have the time and resources to take care of a pet. Some things you want to consider is how big will the pet get, will the pet fit into your lifestyle (active or couch potato). The grooming a pet would require. If you have pets at home, will the new addition be welcome.
Many people get a new puppy or kitten because they are adorable and don’t take into consideration the work, time or expense involved. Help keep the homeless population down by being a responsible pet owner and realize this is a lifetime commitment and not just till the pet grows up or ends up being more than you bargained for. Ask questions, get to know the breed and what is involved.
Shelter pets are great loving loyal pets that love you unconditionally. I find it very impressive that usually no matter what a pet has been through they will love a human as if they have been treated like a king or queen all their life!
