Keeping pets with their families
When falling on hard times, many families face the hard decision of having to give up their pets. This accounts for millions of pets that are destroyed in county shelters each year in the United States. Pet Buddies' hopes to decrease this burden on families by providing pet food, supplies, spay & neuter, and education through our mobile outreach program. Families should not have to choose between feeding themselves or their pets. We are a 100% volunteer-driven organization.
Working within communities
Our community outreach program seeks to increase the overall health and well-being of pets in under-served communities. We work hard to build trusting relationships and establish an ongoing presence in the communities we help.
Improving pet's overall health and wellness through education and resources

Providing Spay & Neuter
For families who cannot afford it
Every year we sponsor up to 300 spay and neuter surgeries for struggling pet owners. Spay & Neuter prevents unwanted litters, and the end results mean less animals dying in shelters. We also provide TNR assistance. Trap-Neuter-Return is the humane and effective approach for stray and feral cats. By providing TNR we are improving the over-all quality of life for the cat and putting an end to the cycle.
To date: We have sponsored 1,500+ spay and neuter surgeries for struggling pet owners & community cats.
Keeping Bellies Full
Donating pet food to struggling families
We meet hundreds of struggling families who are in desperate need of pet food. Many applicants are sharing their own meals & doing the best they can to provide for their pets. One out of six Americans live in poverty, there are tens of millions of people living in poverty with pets. Some of the families we help are single parents, veterans, seniors, disabled, homeless, and everyday people who have fallen on hard times. Our assistance can mean the difference for a pet living with their family or entering a shelter.
