Do I feed my pet or do I feed myself? Do I go to the hospital and risk losing my pet, or do I stay with my furry friend and lose access to the support I need?
These are the kinds of questions that pet owners experiencing issues such as violent living conditions, mental health challenges, and poverty are dealing with this holiday season. The choice to help yourself or take care of your pet is an impossible one – but one that many people are being forced to make.
Through Ruff Times exists so that nobody has to make this impossible decision. Alongside a team of volunteers, Through Ruff Times provides short term emergency pet care options for people going through rough times. The program also provides vet care, pet food, and grooming to those in need.
Despite the importance of this program, Through Ruff Times has no government funding. We rely completely on the generosity of donors to keep this program running.
We need your help to support people and their pets. Donate today, so that nobody has to make the impossible choice between taking care of themselves and keeping their animal companion.
