VIDEO: Animal Services Provides Free Care for Pets of Homeless

Pets of the homeless community were treated to free brief check-ups, vaccinations, licenses and microchips, pet sweaters or coats (donated by you!), leashes and more as part of Project Homeless Connect, which is put on every year by the San Diego Housing Commission.

“A lot of these pets are what these people live for, they’re a part of the family,”said Veterinarian Dr. Cassie Hamilton, D.V.M.

County Animal Services took a look at more than 80 animals including dogs, cats and rabbits at the event.
