About: Pets of the Homeless

Pets of the Homeless, legal name Feeding Pets of the Homeless, is located in Nevada.  Helping abused animals is not the only way to help animals. They are a nonprofit volunteer organization that provides pet food and veterinary care to the homeless across the United States and Canada. Of the approximate 3.5 million Americans that are homeless, between 5% to 24% have dogs and/or cats.

The homeless not only need to find ways to help themselves. If they have pets that they love, they want to take care of them too. Pets of the Homeless utilize collection sites that accept pet food donations. They deliver it to distributing organizations (food banks, homeless shelter and/or soups kitchens) which have agreed to distribute the pet food to the homeless and poor.

Pets of the Homeless sponsor veterinarians that go to where the homeless congregate and provide veterinary care such as vaccines, spay/neuter and other needed treatments at Wellness Clinics.  They assist homeless shelters that will allow pets sanctuary with their owners by shipping crates so that the homeless can come in out of the cold and heat.

Pets of the Homeless addresses many initiatives: recruiting collection sites and distributing organizations as well as awarding grants, answering hundreds of requests for information on how to start a pet food pantry, how to volunteer, how to help a homeless person on the street, how to donate if there isn’t a collection site in the area, where to take pet food, and where to get pet food and veterinary care.  They work with social workers, school children, Scouts, churches and companies who want to help. They talk with homeless everyday about their pets.

By helping the loved pets of the homeless, you are also helping the homeless.

“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.”

Visit their website to find out  more about their initiatives such as:

  • Promoting to veterinarians and pet related businesses the importance of joining the organization as a collection site
  • Campaigning to food distributing organizations the importance of distributing pet food to the less fortunate
  • Speaking out on the issue of pets of homeless and disadvantaged
  • Providing funding to licensed veterinarians and other nonprofit organizations that meet our objective to administer veterinary care to pets of the homeless
  • Providing funding for crates to nonprofit homeless shelters that will allow pets sanctuary with their owners

About White Coat Waste Project Helping Abused Animals

About White Coat Waste Project Helping Abused Animals

white coat waste project

Here is a great way to save taxpayer dollars. And even better, a way to save animals.

The government is supposed to protect all our country, yet they spend about $12-$15 billion tax dollars every year for wasteful experiments on loving animals … cats, dogs, monkeys and other animals. These experiments are brutally cruel. They are useless. Animal lovers and taxpayers aren’t aware of all of this and haven’t approved these experiments.

The White Coat Waste Project, under the leadership of its president Anthony Bellotti, is fighting back. The White Coat Waste Project is the recipient of six “Congressional Waste Warrior” awards. They are helping abused animals by

  • investigating and analyzing these government experiments, the abuse, and the cost,
  • educating the public about these abuses,
  • building a coalition to resolve the issues.

Sample abuses (as per http://www.whitecoatwaste.org/the-facts/):

  • Stuffing hamsters with pizza: $?
  • shrimp fight club: $707,000
  • shrimps running on treadmills: $? see reference: Shrimp running on treadmills
  • Lab Mouse Gender Inequalities $10 million
  • Doped Up Rats: $185,625
  • Stuttering Mice: almost $2 million
  • Vomiting Dogs: $?
  • Monkeys on a treadmill: almost $3 million
  • Green Tea Force-feeding: $?
  • Pig patients: $1.1 million

Currently, the USDA wiped out animal welfare reports and abuse data from its website. Many have protested this action and several lawsuits are being pursued to get this data back online.

For the first time, there will be an audit of the government’s animal labs, thanks to the bi-partisan support, led by Representatives Ken Calvert (R-CA) and Dina Titus (D-NV). See http://www.FactAct.org

Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Reps. Ken Calvert (R-Calif.), Tom Marino (R-Pa.), Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-Calif.) and Dina Titus (D-Nev.) were honored by the White Coat Waste Project for their efforts in these initiatives.

Animal lovers are

Nicaragua is Helping Abused Animals

Nicaragua is Helping Abused Animals

Nicaragua Dog 2A Nicaragua veterinarian clinic is helping abused animals by rescuing and caring for animals. There are more than a million stray animals in Nicaragua. These include dogs and cats that have been abused, starved, run over, poisoned, and suffer many health problems in addition to the abuse they receive from people. These veterinarians also help wild animals and horses. Animals don’t deserve such horrific treatment. They need to be cared for and loved. Animals are loving beings that feel pain, hunger, fear, abandonment. And they mourn, just like humans. Helping abused animals is difficult when there isn’t enough funding to help so many animals.

There is a gofundme page to help raise money for caring of these animals. Visit https://www.gofundme.com/7qmtfc44 to help.

About Paws of War – Helping Abused Animals

About Paws of War – Helping Abused Animals

Paws of WarPaws of War is ‘helping a vet’ while ‘saving a pet’. Their mission is admirable and very much appreciated by veterans and their shelter dogs, and deserves much praise.

“To train and place shelter dogs to serve and provide independence to our U.S. military veterans that suffer from the emotional effects of war.”

Veterans are not charged for this service. The cost is absorbed by donations to the Paws of War. This wonderful service provides life-long support to our veterans and their dogs through personalized one-on-one training sessions. Animals are such loving, devoted companions. It is no wonder how helpful they are to anyone. Paws of War’s approach is helping abused animals at the same time as helping the veterans. A totally win-win situation.

We salute and honor all veterans today on Veteran’s Day, and every day. Thank you!.

Paws of War is located in  Smithtown, NY
