Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: To provide free veterinary care and related services to pets of the homeless and near-homeless in Colorado and other areas of the country.

Results: In May of 2015, the first Street Dog Coalition clinic took place in Fort Collins, Colorado across from the Sister Alice Murphy Center for Hope with a team of five veterinarians, four veterinary technicians, three veterinary students and several dedicated volunteers. It has since expanded to cities across the U.S. and the growth continues. In 2018, we were able to serve nearly 1,000 dogs (and some cats). With the help of our partner veterinarians, we now serve cities in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Florida, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, Nevada, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, DC, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Target demographics: pets of the homeless and near-homeless.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 1000 dogs

Geographic areas served: cities in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Florida, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, Nevada, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, DC, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Programs: setting up pop-up veterinary clinics in communities across the U.S. to provide free veterinary care. This care includes (and is not limited to): vaccinations, heartworm testing and prevention, treatment of minor wounds and infections, pain management, prescriptions and other medical services at no charge. We provide pet food and pet supplies when they are donated, and we also attend events such as Homeless Connect and Veterans Stand Downs. We set up street clinics where they are needed and are able to serve a population who would normally never be able to afford or have access to affordable care for their animals. In addition to providing onsite veterinary care, free vouchers for spay/neuter services at a partnering veterinary clinic are also provided as needed.
