The Homeless Pets Foundation has partnered with Homeless Pet Clubs to help in a communitywide effort to place abandoned, homeless animals into stable homes.
Since 2010, the Homeless Pet Clubs have partnered with local schools and businesses to help bring awareness to their cause. In Georgia, one county has established 50 school clubs with in a three-month period.
Homeless Pet Clubs encourage involvement from local children and teach young children compassion as well as provide many other character-building benefits. The clubs allow children to choose a pet to “sponsor” and help raise funds to support local shelters.
The Homeless Pet Clubs give the opportunity for school children to get involved in their community. These children gain a sense of purpose and it allow them to give back. Those who are involved with the clubs are able to raise awareness to the cause and spread the word of the Homeless Pets Foundation. Social networking is an important factor to the clubs and plays a huge part in saving the lives of thousands of innocent pets who otherwise would not have a chance.
