Did you know that it was Feeding the Pets of the Homeless Week? While this is a time period recognized in the U.S., we know that the affects of poverty reach people and their pets around the world. Homeless people will often allow themselves to go hungry so that their pets may eat, because their pets are loyal and dedicated. Their pets do not look down on their owners circumstances or abandon them because their owners have downgraded in life, so many who struggle with homelessness do their best to sustain their pets, who give unconditional love no matter what.
With that said, unfortunately, pets living in poverty aren't always so lucky and they end up going without food for extended periods of time.
That's why we are encouraging anyone who loves animals to take some time to donate a can of pet food or anything you'd like to local or national pet organizations .
Here's a link to a source featuring donation sites for pet food: https://www.petsofthehomeless.org/donation-sites/
If you'd like to do more, here are a few pet items that would make great donations for pet shelters or homeless pet owners in your community.
