Success Story: Papa

Success Story: Papa

Hello, my name is Papa, and I am a 6-month-old mutt. My human and I have been experiencing homelessness in the San Jose, CA area. Life has been tough, but we’ve managed to stick together and find comfort in each other’s company. Recently, I started feeling really sick. I was vomiting, not eating or drinking, and had very loose stools. My human was really worried about me and reached out to Feeding Pets of the Homeless for help.

Thankfully, Feeding Pets of the Homeless was there for us. A kind case manager completed an intake with my human, and they approved an exam for me. It turns out, I tested positive for Parvo, a scary illness that made me feel so weak and miserable. But because of this amazing organization, I was immediately treated and hospitalized.

The doctors and nurses took great care of me, and after a few days, I started to feel much better. I’m now back with my human, feeling strong and happy again. We are both incredibly grateful for the help we received from Feeding Pets of the Homeless. They covered the cost of my treatment, which totaled $1,500. Without their support, I don’t know what would have happened to me.

Thank you, Feeding Pets of the Homeless and their donors like you, for giving me a second chance and helping my human take care of me. We are forever thankful for your kindness and generosity.

With love,
Papa 🐾
