Homelessness can be caused by many factors. One of the factors is natural disasters.
In November 2018, a Paradise fire survivor JUDY ROBBINS asked for help with a travel trailer to live in with her son and pets. Her home in the rural Paradise town was burned down on November 8th, 2018. We cannot help all fire survivors, but we raised fund to help Judy family and bought this trailer for her, her son, an old dog and a cat. Many families lost their homes in the fire. 86 people died. Over 50,000 people were displayed. The Camp Fire tore through her Paradise town in Northern California and it's the costliest wildfires.
Spay or neuter is the only permanent, 100-percent effective method of birth control for dogs and cats and a proven way to reduce the vast numbers of animals who are born only to die prematurely and without a family who loves them.
Female dogs no longer have a heat cycle; this eliminates the attraction and approach of unwanted attention by male dogs. Roaming is greatly reduced; male dogs, especially those used for security, are less likely to wander off an owner’s property if they do not have the hormone drive to pursue a female in heat.

Distemper is still a major cause of canine death and disability wherever dogs run loose, in areas where the population is too poor to afford vaccinations.

In November 2016, a 71 years old Vietnam veteran, Pete May, asked for help with a travel trailer to live in. His "pre-historic make shift "home was falling apart and rain can pour down forcefully. He was wet and cold.
Pete was cold and wet. His "stove" was no longer working. His dogs are his only family. Pete suffers PTSD and he could not handle the challenges of dealing with VA to get help.
We contacted many "Veteran nonprofit groups on his behalf", including Gary Sinise Foundation, to no avail.
We raised fund and bought a 31 ft travel trailer for him to live in. We got his trailer equipped with solar panels, propane tanks, so he can have hot water to shower, cook, heater, etc.. Video of Pete home
