Poverty Pets was created to assist
Families and Pets
Before the shelter!
(We are located in Washington,DC)
The purpose of Poverty Pets is to provide temporary
financial assistance to owners of domestic animals who are
in need of veterinary care. Our long term goal is to work
towards a future where a life or death decision in not made
for a companion animal based on lack of finances.

Our goal is to keep as many family
pets out of the animal shelters
unnecessarily as possible.
The elderly and most vulnerable in
our society should not have to
choose between rent or medical
care for a companion animal.

What We Do.
Euthanasia is an every day reality in Shelter Life.
Euthanasia is a humane tool used to end the life of an
animal with dignity. Poverty Pets will do everything
possible to make sure the family dog, cat or bird does
not end up in the local shelter with a possibility of
being euthanized unnecessarily because their owner is
unable to provide veterinary care.
