Pet Food & Pet Supplies
We supply our community partners, who are out every day of the week in homeless encampments all over the city of Louisville visiting our homeless with pets, with everything that they will need to make sure the pets of the homeless are cared for including pet food and supplies like leashes, collars, harnesses, food/water bowls, blankets, dog/cat coats, carriers and more.
Pet Deposits For Housing
We help the homeless with companion animals who have qualified for housing with their pet deposits and up to 6 months in pet-related rent fees.
ESA (Emotional Support Animal) Certification
We help the homeless with companion animals with having their pets registered as emotional support animals – if they qualify within the bounds of the law – so they will be allowed to take their ESA with them into housing and on public transportation.
Microchipping & Licensing
We work with local veterinarians and authorities like Louisville Metro Animal Services to microchip and license the pets of our homeless friends to our organization so we help reunite the homeless with their companion animals should they become separated.
