Can I bring my pet to your clinic even if I'm not homeless?
Our pet care is intended for those who DO NOT have a home. For us, homelessness means the following:
1. an individual who lacks a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence; and2. an individual who has a primary nighttime residence that is -
A. a supervised publicly or privately operated shelter designed to provide temporary living accommodations (including welfare hotels, congregate shelters, and transitional housing for the mentally ill);
B. an institution that provides a temporary residence for individuals intended to be institutionalized; or
C. a public or private place not designed for, or ordinarily used as, a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings.

Should homeless people even have pets since they have trouble supporting themselves?
For a homeless person a pet is more than just a companion. They are a protector, a friend, a heater, a reason for hope, and sometimes the only family that they have. The majority of the dogs that we see are well behaved and socialized. In addition, they are usually doted on by their owners who often put the pet's comfort and safety above their own.
I am not homeless but I have a very limited income and cannot afford to take my pet to a veterinarian. Where can I go?
