For many homeless folks, finding housing is hard enough and doesn’t get easier when they find a “no pets allowed” apartment. That’s why it’s a huge deal that this New Transitional Housing In Georgetown Will Allow Pets To Stay With Owners!
The Brandywine Valley SPCA was on location at these new units last week, offering a free pet wellness day.
Inspiring day yesterday! Our 1st free pet wellness day at Pallet Village in Georgetown, a pet-friendly Springboard Collaborative tiny home community for folks transitioning from unsheltered homelessness. We’re providing vet care, spay/neuter, supplies. https://t.co/249BvePJvz— BrandywineValleySPCA (@BrandywineSPCA) May 11, 2023
This new transitional housing in Georgetown is a unique community run by The Springboard Collaborative. The layout includes 40 pet-friendly tiny homes for people transitioning from homelessness.
An alarming percentage of the unhoused would choose to remain homeless than accept housing that will separate them from their pets.
Imagine going through such a struggle, living on the street and finally finding somewhere you can afford to live. Then, you find out that they do not allow pets and you have to make the tough decision to surrender them or stay homeless.
Our friends at the BVSPCA are now part of the services at this innovative community. They will be providing regular free wellness care and spay/neuter.
Yarn & Bone has also jumped in on the action and promised to provide free pet supplies.
This is a big win for the homeless community and for homeless pets.
