NYC STREET CLINIC RESEARCH RESULTS RELEASED
On June 15th 2019, My Dog Is My Home and partners hosted NYC's first ever One Health Street Clinic for individuals experiencing homelessness and their pets. Research was conducted in order to shed light on the continued barriers and potential solutions to accessing services for homelessness New Yorkers that stay on the street in order to stay with their furry family member.

In an attempt to support our homeless neighbors, My Dog Is My Home along with our partners Street Dog Coalition, MooShoes, and Planned Parenthood will be hosting a street clinic to provide free veterinary care, basic medical care, pet supplies, and human supplies to the New York Community. Research will also be undertaken at this event with the goal of gathering valuable data on the demographics and needs of NYC’s homeless human-animal families. This is a One Health clinic serving both humans and non-human animals, a first of its kind in New York City.
