Pets Without Homes




By Jessica King (Canada)





Midnight Dash




There is one shelter for pets and people in all of Toronto. People have animals for companionship, and the waiting list for this one shelter is 2 years long. Most homeless people with pets canít wait that long. And finding a home that allows people with pets is really hard.



You have to make the decision on whether you keep you animal or get rid of them. I would rather be homeless with my animal then be without one. The fact of the matter is a pet is more than an animal. Itís your best friend. Itís the one person in the world that doesnít care if you are dirty or homeless. They are the one person that will always be there. Midnight Dash was and will always be my baby. Whether I am homeless or not, she is always there by my side.



The homeless shelter system needs to accept more people with pets.
