Homeless Youth Shelter Now Provides Free Vet Services For Their PetsAshley Maisano
Founded in 2002, Sox Place offers a safe haven for homeless young people, providing them with food, clothes and friendship.
Now, they’re stepping it up a notch and providing free veterinarian care for their dogs and cats.
For some of these kids, like 26-year-old Louis Peters, their pets are the only family they have.
According to Fox 31 Denver, Peters rescued his canine companion, Dagger, three months ago. He says he was covered head to toe in fleas, had chewed up ears, and no hair.
Just like Sox Place gave Peters a roof over his head and a sense of comfort, Dagger will now find it too.
Sox Place will be able to offer Dagger, and other pets just like him, exams, shots, cleaning, food and counseling, all free of charge.
“Thankfully enough I get to look after him in a way I haven’t been able to, so, that’s really important,” Peters told Fox 31.
Faith in humanity: restored!
