Our Mission

​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

Creating change

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.

Our goals:

  • Improving pets overall health and wellness through education and resources

  • Targeting communities and pets that need help the most

  • Preventing pet homelessness by providing free spay/neuter

  • Breaking down barriers and cultivating relationships in areas where poverty is high & resources are limited

  • Ensuring we can help as many pet owners keep their pets through challenging circumstances

  • Lessen the amount of pets that enter shelters

Providing Spay & Neuter

For families who cannot afford it

Every year we provide hundreds of spays & neuters for pets in our program. We believe that S/N prevents unwanted litters and the end results means less animals dying on the streets and in shelters. We also provide TNR assistance (trap, neuter, return) for small feral cat communities. Stray cats live in every community. TNR can help the quality of outdoor cats and stop the spread of disease and death. Pet Buddies' vision is to live in a world where we no longer have to destroy animals in shelters. We want to see every pet have a loving & forever home, but we, along with millions of other animal advocate groups, have a lot of work to do!

To date: We have helped over 1,000 pets get fixed in struggling communities!

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 these people are single parents, veterans, seniors, disabled 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.
