As many homeless people are given a free meal, another group is making the effort to watch out for the companions of these people.
Nightlight Tulsa offers to give the homeless free meals and two years ago a couple of volunteers noticed that these people were sharing with their closest friends: cats and dogs.
In an effort to assist the pets of the homeless, three animal control workers grouped together to collect bags of cat and dog food for the homeless pets.
They started handing out a few bags a day, blossoming into hundreds a week.
“In the two years we've been going to Nightlight, we've given out over 53 thousand pounds of dog food,” Susan Stoker, Animal Shelter Supervisor said.
The workers also provide shot clinics and pet gear. If you'd like to help out, you can donate food at the animal shelter.
