About Pets of the Homeless

Pets Of The Homeless (POTH) helps keep vulnerable people and their pets together by alleviating the burden of providing essential pet care during times of hardship. We believe that the companionship and the therapeutic value of pets is immeasurable and nothing should come between a loving owner and their pet. Not homelessness. Not financial hardship. Not domestic violence. Pets are family – and nothing should stand in the way of that.

Volunteers are integral to our mission, playing an active and vital role in helping to support our work to improve the lives of people and pets in need.
