During difficult times, a pet can be a person’s greatest source of comfort. Imagine the heartache of being forced to choose between feeding your family or feeding your dog. These are the choices people face every day. Out of love for their pets, some surrender them to shelters or rescues, hopeful that someone else will provide the things that they cannot.
We believe that loving pet owners should never have to make these choices. People & Pets Together was formed in response to the worst economic recession in recent history. Thousands of good people lost jobs, finding work was hard, and medical safety nets disappeared. One trip to the hospital could result in financial ruin.
People & Pets Together offers hope and an alternative to surrender. We support the relationships that people have with their pets. Caring for them gives us purpose, and the love we give them is repaid tenfold.
Our program provides pet food to Metro area food shelves, host subsidized vaccination clinics, offers small grants for veterinary care, and, most recently, opened Minnesota's first pet food shelf and resource center.
We know pets are family, and we help families stay together.
