Homeless Dog Many people wonder why the homeless have pets when they can’t even take care of themselves. The answer isn’t complicated:

Pets provide a deep comfort.

Pets are non-judgmental. They are loyal.

The homeless get a type of normalcy by providing food and water for their pets.  In some cases, they provide them with reality.

I have seen homeless sacrifice their own food for their pets.

Then there is the protection factor.  Living on the streets is dangerous.  For many on the streets these animals provide them with security from other homeless or from those that discriminate against the homeless with beatings or from others who may steal their modest possessions.

The tragic part is…the pets of the homeless do not choose their owners.
