Poverty’s Pets rescues abandoned, neglected, and abused companion animals in low-income and underserved communities. Through education and veterinary care (including spay and neuter services), it is our goal to end animal cruelty, suffering, overpopulation, and homelessness.
Poverty’s Pets was established in 2006, under the direction of the Founder and Animal Advocate, Kate Sivolella, with a mission to address animals in low-income and underserved neighborhoods, with a particular focus on spay/neuter clinics.
Since 2008, Poverty’s Pets has facilitated the adoption of over 700 animals and provides medical services to over 500 animals each year.
