At The People Concern, we don’t just provide housing and supportive services to our unhoused neighbors, we also care for and support the pets they love. For people experiencing homelessness, a pet is more than just a furry friend – pets provide security, emotional support, companionship and so much more. We are proud to welcome pets at all of our interim housing and permanent supportive housing (PSH) facilities across L.A. County.

Petey, an American Bulldog mix, was the beloved dog of one of our program participants at Arlington Square, a PSH facility in Los Angeles. When Petey’s owner tragically passed away this November, The People Concern’s k9 connection’s program was ready to assist. Through their pool of foster pet parents, they immediately found a foster home for Petey and after a few short weeks, we are happy to share that Petey was adopted!

k9 connection’s foster program helps program participants find temporary homes for their pets during times when they are unable to care for them, such as when undergoing medical procedures or entering substance use treatment facilities. Currently, k9 connection’s pool of available foster parents is extremely scarce – we need you to help us grow our community of foster parents!
