This non profit organization has been a blessing to me and my furbabies. I am so grateful to have crossed paths with them. Lord knows ever since I lost my home after ending a 19yr abusive relationship and not being able to afford on just my disability then being put out after owner sold house out from under me. Putting me and my dog with no where to go except in and out of weeklies and cheap hotels until disability check ran out and then evicted again. Ive exhausted all resources available to me and still after 6yrs on the streets on the housing help list and not able to get any real place on my own because they have all demand proof of 2-3x more than rent income even though I had proof of disability check to cover rent. And now because of being kicked out of every weekly in Vegas because couldn't afford 300 a week now my check only $790 a month. So forced to seek shelter wherever I can on the streets that will keep me and my pup safe from weather/predators and yes police unfortunately for constantly harassing and making move even in a empty lot. Just when I was giving up hope on all human kindness. I came across this group of people who actually found me and my furbabies living on top of a creek wash(will never live in the tunnels) someone if I remember right had told someone they knew about a woman living in the wash alone with just her dog and cat and how we had nothing and they would see me go out every day with my dog on a cart to fly a sign to get supplies for us. I believe it was the founder Sheryl's daughter that walked out to me hollering ahead before approaching that she was there to help me and my pets. That she heard about me and brought me supplies. I wanted to cry but held back. Because out here crying is 1 sign of weakness and people out here feed off of your weakness. If you have ever been homeless you would understand what I mean. Anyway she had dog food and cat food and toy's for them and blankets for all 3of us and food for me. This was about 5yrs ago when I met them. They have since then have continue to help me with supplies and even put us in a weekly for a week a couple of times. Getting us out of the heat for awhile. They have more than a few times covered vet bills and just recently covered getting my new puppy a stray I rescued from the railroad tracks getting him nueter and shots and micro chip as well as supplies needed to start training him and keeping him. They also helped me with my broken heart when after 11 wonderful years I had with my special heart Chance had to be put down because he had finally lost his battle with cancer. After a month of depression they asked me to help rescue a dog that was scheduled to be euthanize 3 days later. Ironically it was the exact same dog i had just inquired about on their website. So we were meant to cross paths as well. We saved each other. They brought me blue that exact night. I have since gave blue to a good friend and big hearted caring person that loves blue very much and they had a Bond much stronger than ours. I gave him up to rescue this new pup off the tracks because i saw something inside his eyes that told me he was worth saving and giving a second chance at a great life. First thing that needed to be done was have him nueter and again street street dogz came to my aid not once or ever questioning my needs. They even helped me to help give a little Xmas cheer to surrounding homeless I know. They litterely filled a dually truck with a extra cab which also was packed. Me and my dog had to sit on some of the supplies to fit in the truck own by Bob who is also a volunteer for street dogz. They gave me a ride back to my spot where Bob helped me to unload the truck load of brand new clothes for both men and women/brand new backpacks full of hygiene and snacks/brand new case of unisex socks and endless bedding and plenty of pet supplies for mine and the other homeless pets out there. It was amazing. They went above and beyond what anybody has ever done for me and especially to help the homeless out here. I will forever be grateful and in their debt for the rest of my existence. All i can offer at this time in my life situation is to keep promoting them and the amazing thing's they do for animals and the homeless as well. They have never nor do they ever have made me feel like I wasn't someone important too and that I matter in this world of ever judgemental people out there and they have treated all homeless as equal and matter as well. I constantly recommend them to those in need. Thank you sooo much Cheryl and the rest of street dogz crew for everything you have done for me and all of my furbabies over the year's I have been out here surviving. Which you guy's have been a huge part of that survival. God bless you guy's we luv ya

My name is nichoke And back into 2015 my condo burned down and my my companion of 10 years passed away in the fire but I also had other dogs that I had to care for with nowhere to go and they went and bought me a tent shoes socks food leashes collars food beds for my my remaining dogs and they’ve just throughout the years of always been there and then couple days ago where I live now there was a feral cat and his name is Rusty and he between myself and 3 and the two neighbors on each side we took care of him and he disappeared for five days and he came back on the fifth day and his His eye was bloody and closed and his mouth was just destroyed into pieces and I took him to five different places and no one would help me so finally I called Street Dogs and within minutes they had me driving to the vet down on Eastern which was very kind and they took Rusty run in and unfortunately he was too damaged to save so they had to put him down but if it wasn’t for them I don’t know what I would’ve done because I was devastated for this beautiful cat is lovely cat that just adopted all of us and just wanted to be loved that someone could hurt him so hard so bad and they help me be able to justThey help me because it to make it where he wouldn’t suffer and I am eternally grateful if it wasn’t for this nonprofit so many of us as people struggling and so many animals there are kids that we love would be in a completely different situation these people are amazing and they deserve the world thank you so much from the bottom of my heart we love you

I've been homeless on and off for around 20 years. I've lived in Southern California and in the Las Vegas, Nevada area, and several other places across the United States of America. I have had pets when I was homeless because it's hard to feel safe when you are a woman alone out there. I am a recovering addict and I also have mental health issues that make it hard to communicate with people. The one thing that separates Street Dogz from all the other animal rescue groups is that they don't want to take your Best friend and only thing that loves you away from you! Everytime I tried to get help I got told to just get rid of the dog or cat because it would be better for both of us. It's not better it's much worse! They come to you and help you were you are.

When mama died, my sisters and I had no idea her little guy Presley was going to be such a handful. He was not neutered, thought he was a coyote, and was always running off. He wanted to hang out with the local coyote pack, and they wanted to eat him. This was a real problem as you can imagine. We are all on fixed incomes and could not afford to get him fixed, but I contacted Joyce @ Street Dogz, and she was more than eager to help us resolve this problem. With her help, Presley was neutered, and his behaviors are changing, but now he has medical issues that we couldn't afford to take him to the vet for. Once again, I contacted Street Dogz, and Joyce spent the last two days hooking me up with affordable vet care. Presley is in a lot of pain and isn't feeling too well, but thanks to Street Dogz he will see the doctor in a couple days. This organization has been nothing short of concerned, compassionate and eager to help throughout all of these problems concerning Presley. They are committed to helping dogs and their people. I could write good things about them all day long and still I would not be able to explain what a blessing Street Dogz have been to my sisters and I as well as Presley.

This organization is so dedicated to doing God's work that they drove food and treats all the way across Las Vegas to my niece who was feeding her dog rice & eggs because she lost her job. They have given my friend and I dog food, toys, shoes for my friends homeless dogs, bowls, cat food for my aunt and are assisting my friend with veterinary care for her dog. They stay in touch with you until they can make sure all your needs are met and really work so hard to offer quality assistance as much as possible. I highly recommend this organization to anyone looking for assistance or looking for a deserving non profit to donate to. Street Dogs has amazed me with their persistence, passion and amount of help they continually offer!!!

My family and I adopted a German Shepherd. Street dogs gave us everything we needed to give Stella a good home they provided us with beds, an extra large crate, food and water dishes, E collar and leash and harness, a huge bag of dog food, a food storage bin, dog treats, hip and joint pain support treats and more! They asked for nothing in return except for us to give Stella a good home! This charity is absolutely amazing and they are doing so much good in our community. I am so grateful for everything they’ve done and continue to do!

I was in a very bad situation and needed emergency help with my pet, I contacted street dogs after learning about them in hopes of getting help. They immediately responded and helped out with getting everything taken care of. My pet is fighting a strong MRSA infection and street dogs has helped with everything from Vet appointments, medicines, food and also help for myself and my health. One vet had told me there was no treatment and I would have to euthanize my dog but STREET DOGZ and Mrs. Cheryl didn’t give up on us!! They have given us a chance to fight this and after some months of being on treatment Romeo’s progress is incredible and I could not thank them enough for EVERYTHING! THANK YOU STREET DOGZ! And everyone on the team!

There was a cat left behind in an apartment after tennant moved. My friend called and asked if I could take it while we looked for a new owner. After a few days it was apparent I was the new owner lol. I have no income living in assisted living. I got Street Dogz number from a case mgr. They brought out everything I could possibly need for new cat.From food n bowls to litter box n toys. They even helped me get her groomed cause she was so covered in nats n fireballs. Blondie is such a happy ,loving cat and now she feels safe. If I take a nap shes right there at my feet lol. Street Dogz is an amazing group of volunteers.

I'm am so Greatful to street Doggz,I found myself in a very tight financial situation and being inMobile to get around since my wheeelchair batteries went out and I thought back to when I use to be on the other side feeding the homeless cats for many years since I was a young girl till today up till about two years ago and I thought let me search for groups that help And it's how I found street doggz in searching everyone recommended,street Doggz came to my rescue right away and I litterally had cried when she left happy tears
of relief and knowing there's people who care about my animals as much as me and even about me I was shocked she wanted to just be there for me also to spread the word this kind lady did about my situation and my wheelchair and I couldn't be even more greatful but all the cat food and litter she brought to me with her smiling face and granddaughter brightened my day because being trapped here in my apts been hard and as soon as I'm in a better financial situation I'm going to give back to street doggz.It gives hope I can only imagine to so many others like it did me knowing there's organizations and people out there like Janice from street doggz.Thank you so very much❤️❤️

Hello my name is Pammy Wilson and my husband is Wesley and our 17 year old fur baby is ChaChee.
Our baby ChaChee is 17 yrs old and takes Levetiracetam for his seizures and Liquid Gabepentin for his pain of hips, back and a growth on his side and feet. We needed to get ChaChee to a Veterinarian and get bloodwork and a check up so that we could get refills for his scripts.We were on our last months supply of his medicine and and we could not find any veterinarian that would helps us. We did not have a dime to our name. I have multiple sclerosis and an inoperable spinal aneurysm and we fell on extremely rough times. We had no way to get the medicine that our fur baby needed for his seizures and pain. We reached out to Street Dogz and they have gone above and beyond to ensure that ChaChee is well taken care of. They provide for his care when we could not. He is our biggest priority and our life. We are forever grateful for the resources that Street Dogz has provided ChaChee to get to the veterinary and get his medicine. We also are forever thankful for the love and support that you have provided us. There has been some scary days where we did not think ChaChee would live and you guys calmed me down and offered unconditional love and support to us as we dealt with his seizures. Because of Street Dogz help our boy ChaChee is getting ready to celebrate his 18th Birthday on August 29th.
How can we ever thank you for saving our boy ChaChee’s life.
We love Street Dogz and hope that you know we appreciate everyone of you!
Sincerely
Pammy, Wesley and ChaChee.

It all started with assisting with food and has grown exponentially from there. Street Dogz literally provides for it all (within its means of course): food, medical, grooming, boarding, spay/neuter, sharing resource information for both pet and human needs, and more. The kindness and giving of time and efforts by every one from the founder to each of the volunteers is inspiring. It is a honor to be a part of such an amazing team. If you need assistance, please call Street Dogz.

I do some volunteering with this non profit because they have found a part of animal rescue that is often forgotten. Street Dogz feeds hundreds of pets that are owned by homeless or lower income people who would not be able to feed them without the assistance from Street Dogz. They do everything in their power to keep that pet with its family and not to have to be re-homed or surrendered. They also assist with medical and shelting of the pets as much as donations allow. Street Dogz also extends a hand to the owners of the pets with clothing, blankets, tents, human foods and information on how they can get help from state programs. This non profit is amazing to say the least.
