Get Help - Pets of the Homeless -

New York City, New York

Collide - A ministry that provides assistance to homeless youth and travelers of the East Village/LES by offering food and medical care to their companion animals. We operate through Graffiti Community Ministries, located inside of Graffiti Church, applying our faith by sharing God’s love in a practical way and affirming the worth of people and animals who call the streets home. At Collide, we recognize the critical role companion animals play in the overall well-being of their owners, as they offer emotional support, stability, and unconditional love. We believe all creatures are valuable, and for us, that means compassion extends from the end of the leash to the hand that holds it.

Philadelphia, PA

PDSCenter is a clinical organization, which deals with various kind of psychological and emotional disabilities and prescribe emotional support animals to cure such disorders in an effective manner. This psychological medical center also provides service animal letters that serve as the only source of identity and legal protection under federal law. Having the ESA letter, you can take an emotional support animal everywhere you travel. This letter identifies the animals as service animals and grants special benefits for them.

Total amount

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $65.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $65.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $65.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
