Homeless Pet Clubs

Homeless Pet Clubs (HPC) is an adjunct organization of The Homeless Pets Foundation (HPF), which was created in 1998 by Dr. Michael Good, an Atlanta, Georgia veterinarian, to save homeless pets. Dr. Good founded the 501 (c) (3) nonprofits to help animal shelters adopt-out more pets. Dr. Good wants to help these animals find loving, forever homes. His mantra, “We want to save them all!”

HPF provides critical medical care, food, foster care, and comfort to homeless animals. The organization also maintains a network of communication between volunteers, shelters, advocates, and potential adoptees, leveraging volunteer enthusiasm and technology to save lives. Since late in 2002, HPF and HPC have placed nearly 20,000 animals in loving homes.

The Homeless Pet Clubs were created to bring two groups together to help find homes for homeless pets. First, the shelter or rescue organization and then the clubs (which could be the 2nd grade class at your local school, the fire station, your office, or a group interested in helping homeless pets find their forever home).

The way this works is that the shelter or rescue group setup their organization on our website. They select some dogs and cats that may have a hard time attracting families to adopt them (maybe they are senior pets, maybe they have health issues that need attention, maybe they need to be the only pet in the home). The photos and info about these pets are added to the website. Next, clubs are formed. You may be asked to be a club by the area organizer of the Homeless Pet Clubs, or you can click the “Get Involved” link on our website and start your own club. The club then selects one of the pets from your Homeless Pet Clubs local shelter or rescue group and then goes to work, bringing information to your community with the goal of finding a forever home for your selected pet.

Once adopted, your club selects another pet and you do it again; find the next forever home! School clubs are perfect because the kids love to help and feel accomplished when the pet they selected from the local Homeless Pet Clubs shelter finds their forever home. The other great thing that comes from kids being involved is that they learn what it means to help their community!
