The 7th annual National Feeding Pets of the Homeless Give a Dog a Bone Week is coming up on Aug. 7-14.
Pets of the Homeless, a national nonprofit based in Carson City, is collecting donations of pet food and supplies to help local pets of the homeless. Donations are given to food banks, soup kitchens, and homeless shelters which then give the pet food and supplies to their clients. 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. More than 13,800 pets have been treated.
To find a donation drop-off site or to make a cash donation, go to petsofthehomeless.org.
