Each year in Cleveland, more than 96,000 Cleveland cats and dogs live in poverty, where they can suffer from hunger, lack of reliable shelter and inadequate health care. That’s why Neighborhood Pets Outreach & Resource Center was born. The goal: to keep animals at home, and healthy.
“Our human clients have one thing in common: they love their pets,” says Becca Britton, the agency’s executive director. “In some cases, these pets are providing much-needed friendship and sense of purpose for their owners. When we are able to help them support the well-being of their dogs and cats, the quality of life improves for everyone.”
