National Pet Food Drive

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

Feeding Pets of the Homeless is a wonderful organization that we support.  We collect recyclables and food donations for them.  All of the items and money we collect here are distributed locally to help both homeless animals and those that have very limited means.  There is a saying at Feeding Pets of the Homeless: Sometimes a 99 cent cheeseburger is a meal for two.  We are happy to be able to support them during the year, but there is a national push to really bulk up on the collection of food for the summer.  Food can be in opened bags as well, so if you had something that wasn’t a good fit for your pup, please donate it instead of throwing it away!  We also have a donation box if you would prefer to donate cash instead of food.  These people can use all of the help they can get.

Check out their Flickr page for some photos showing who they are helping.

“Give a Dog a Bone”

Feeding Pets of the Homeless Leads National Pet Food Drive

The week of August 6-10 is the third National Feeding Pets of the Homeless “Give a Dog a Bone” Week.  Donations of pet food can be brought to Dogtopia of Temecula  at 27629 Commerce Center Drive.

Homelessness is on the rise and between 10-25% of homeless have pets in need of food. There are over 375 collection sites across America. Donations of pet food and supplies are received at member collection sites and distributed to food banks, soup kitchens, and homeless shelters which then give the pet food and supplies to their clients.
Genevieve Frederick, Founder of Pets of the Homeless said, “Since 2008, collection site members have taken over 124 tons of pet food and supplies to homeless shelters, food banks and soup kitchens across the country. Some of our volunteers take it to the streets where the homeless congregate. It is a combined effort to continue year-round collections of pet food. We applaud the caring, member sites who have reported their contributions. The need is great for communities to continue to donate to this on-going effort.”
As an outreach to the homeless who own pets, Pets of the Homeless, also uses cash donations to provide veterinary care to pets of the homeless at free wellness clinics as well as emergency veterinary care across the country.
“Most shelters do not allow animals, so rather than give up their beloved pets, many homeless stay on the streets.” Ms Frederick explained, “We provide pet sleeping crates, free of charge, to homeless shelters that allow refuge to the homeless with pets.”
Feeding Pets of the Homeless provides support to pet business owners who wish to give back to their community by becoming a member collection site. Helpful start-up information is available on the website.
