Pet Friendly Homeless Shelters
Today more and more shelters are providing areas at their shelters for pets. This mainly includes dogs.
It is still the case that most shelters do not accept pets. This is also one of the main reasons why homeless do not see out shelters for aid. They want to stay with their pets.
On ShelterList.com, we list the full details of pet friendly shelters when we locate them. We realize this is a valuable resource for the homeless and these lists of pet friendly shelters are hard to find. So, when we do locate these shelters, we list them on the website.
