Breakfasters: Getting to Know Local Charity Organisation Pets of the Homeless
Pets of the Homeless is a local volunteer-run, not-for-profit organisation that works with social service agencies to provide support to the pets of people currently experiencing or at risk of homelessness. Founder Yvonne Hong tells fill-in Breakfasters Aisha, Flick and Dan about how her search for a worthy volunteer organisation to help people experiencing homelessness led to starting her own.
Yvonne explains what Pets of the Homeless do, from providing food and basic care, to fundraising for vet bills, to offering respite when people aren’t able to care for their pets.
