We have partnered with Pet Food Providers across the nation that include food banks, pantries, soup kitchens and shelters. If you need food or supplies for your pet, please search our resources map for a Pet Food Provider near you and call to see if they have supplies on hand.

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.

Meet Shadow!Hello, my name is Shadow and I’m a 4-year-old Labrador mix. My humans and I have been experiencing homelessness, living out of our car in the Martinez, CA area for just about 2 years.One day, my human noticed one of my ears was enlarged. Then it ruptured, and my human knew I needed to see a vet. My dad reached out to the VA and was given the number to an organization called Feeding Pets of the Homeless. So my human called, completed an intake interview, and once we provided homeless verification, my human was given the number to our local vet so we could make an appointment.Thankfully, a walk-in exam was approved, and once at the vet’s office, it was determined that I had an ear hematoma. I was sedated, put on some fluids, and my ear was repaired and cleaned. I was even sent with an Ecollar – oh, the fun we had!Thank you to Feeding Pets of the Homeless for contributing $1544 towards my care.A couple of months have gone by, and my humans thought it would be nice to call our case manager at Feeding Pets of the Homeless and give her an update. We were no longer homeless, living out of our car. My family got into housing because my human was approved through the HUD-VASH Program, a program for veterans like my dad! My dad says we might not have a table to eat at, but when he looks at me being the happiest of pups, he could live without it. We are so grateful for the support that made this possible.Shadow’s story is a testament to the power of compassion and its impact on those in need. They may be just one dog, but to their owner, they are their world. Your support is not just a donation – it's a lifeline. Together, we can ensure that pets like Shadow receive the care they deserve, no matter their obstacles. Click the donation button to help make a world of difference one pet at a time! ...
