About feeding pets to the homeless:
Pet feeding the homeless believes in the healing power of companion pets and the human-animal relationship, which is very important in the lives of many homeless people. They find solace, protection, and companionship through their pets. They take care of their pets with limited resources, so they themselves have less. The mission, nationwide, is to feed and provide basic emergency veterinary care to their pets, thereby relieving the suffering and anxiety of homeless people who cannot support their pets.
