Pets with a Promise
Family Promise of Monroe County’s Pets with a Promise allows families to keep their pets while working towards independence in the program. The funds allow Family Promise to offer direct services to families with pets including boarding, vaccinations, veterinary care, pet supplies, and transportation related to boarding or fostering. The goal of Pets with a Promise is to ensure families experiencing homelessness do not have to choose between receiving services and keeping their pets.
