Project Description

Feeding Pet of the Homeless™

Feeding Pets of the Homeless is the first and one of a few national animal organizations focused on feeding and providing emergency care to pets of homeless people.

Feeding Pets of the Homeless believes in the healing power of companion pets and of the human/animal bond which is very important in the lives of many homeless. They find solace, protection and companionship through their pets. They care for their pets on limited resources so they themselves have less. Our task, nationwide, is to feed and provide basic emergency veterinary care to their pets and thus relieve the anguish and anxiety of the homeless who cannot provide for their pets.

WHAT WE DO

Feeding Pets of the Homeless™ is a nationwide organization serving the homeless population with pets in all 50 states and parts of Canada. Five to ten percent of homeless people have dogs and/or cats. In some areas of the country the rate is as high as 25%. Animals can provide the homeless with security from other homeless or from those that discriminate against the homeless with beatings or from others who may steal their modest possessions.

FPOTH depends on grants and individual and corporate donations to its 501(C)(3) to fund its major programs including emergency veterinary care, pet food and supplies, wellness clinic sponsorships and sleeping crates. The majority of homeless shelters don’t allow pets, leaving people to choose between shelter or giving up their best friend.

FPOTH relies on community partnerships across the nation to fulfill their mission. Building and maintaining relationships with volunteers, donation sites, provider sites, and veterinarians in their network is paramount to their success. Our marketing efforts include focus on these relationships.

We work closely with the FPOTH executive leadership on marketing strategy, fundraising, stakeholder retention strategy, focus group planning and execution, public relations and campaign-based marketing. We consult and manage collaborative projects with writers and media.
