Feeding Pets of the Homeless® is the first and one of the few national nonprofits providing pet food and emergency veterinary care to pets that belong to homeless people.


We believe every pet deserves not to be hungry or suffer from an illness or injury.  If you are homeless, or a Veteran, and need help  caring for your pet, we can help.

Our pet food donation site volunteers support our objective of collecting pet food and pet supplies. They are working with pet food providers who have agreed to distribute pet food in those communities.

Make a Donation

Your donation can make the lives of these pets a little easier, healthier and have a full belly. Each day is a struggle for the homeless, and their pets have little recourse. We are their voice, and you can be their hero.

Evidence shows that animal companionship is fortifying and contributes to the emotional well-being of people experiencing homelessness, including encouraging owners to obtain sobriety, leave abusive relationships, and avoid incarceration.


Feeding Pets of the Homeless® is a national non-profit that works with businesses and volunteers across the country to collect pet food and supplies for our homeless population that owns pets. Our volunteers help enlist pet food donation sites in their local communities and are advocates for keeping pets and humans together.

We need your compassion and help to continue our work as the homeless situation grows in our country. Becoming a volunteer is easy!

A man has been homeless for the past 10 years. He is currently in a shelter, disabled and pending disability. At this time, he is receiving food stamps. He reached out to Feeding Pets of the Homeless for his male 3-month-old old French Bulldog named Blue. Blue was bleeding from his bottom when he would have a bowel movement.He shared he adopted Blue a few weeks ago from a shelter. At the time of adoption, the owner was told that the dog had a prolapsed rectum that was stitched and would not need surgery or further care on it. However, when Blue’s owner called the rescue to try and speak with a tech or someone that might know the situation, he was told that there was nothing they could assist with. Feeding Pets of the Homeless completed an intake when he called and homeless verification was provided. Our case manager found a partner veterinary hospital where we approved an exam. After being seen by the veterinarian, it was determined that Blue needs surgery to repair the prolapsed rectum. Blue will need to wait about 2 weeks for surgery to clear up an infection first.Feeding Pets of the Homeless contributed $330 for his initial exam, medications, fluids and fecal test.$1,600 has been approved for his surgery in 2 weeks. We would like to wish Blue a speedy recovery. ... See MoreSee Less
