Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

People & Pets Together believes that by providing food, subsidized veterinary care and other resources, we are reducing the number of animals surrendered to shelters. Food and veterinary care are the biggest household expenses for dogs and cats, according to consumer research studies. Studies of people relinquishing dogs and cats at shelters have shown that free or low-cost pet food, along with low cost veterinary care, were services that might have helped to keep pets in their homes.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Pet food shelf

In early 2016 People & Pets Together opened our pet food shelf in Minneapolis, the first dedicated pet food shelf in Minnesota. Our priority is to serve residents of the Phillips and Powderhorn neighborhoods of Minneapolis, areas with a high percentage of people living in poverty.

Population(s) Served
Adults

People & Pets Together assists families facing economic hardship by providing pet food to food shelves in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul metropolitan area. Each year, there are close to 2 million visits to food shelves in the Twin Cities metro area. Most food shelves do not provide pet food.

Population(s) Served
Adults

People & Pets Together's veterinary assistance grant program helps cover emergency vet bills for low-income households. We work with local veterinary clinics who make decisions about candidates for financial assistance. We provide $250 per month to each clinic to subsidize veterinary care.
