Currently, there are no New York City homeless shelters offering accommodations for people experiencing homelessness with animals. 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.
