The Street Dog Coalition administers veterinary services to pets of people experiencing homelessness every Tuesday from 11am to 12p at the Mary Alice Murphy Center for Hope. We will post an announcement on this site should we ever have to miss a Tuesday. You can sign up for an appointment with the wonderful folks working the front desk of the Murphy Center.
Homelessness Awareness Day will kick off with the M2H Walk, beginning at 8am. It is a .8 mile walk from Catholic Charities Mission to the Murphy Center and a walk that many Murphy Center guests take daily. The M2H Walk ends with an Open House at the Murphy Center, where community members can tour the facility, learn about on-site agency partners, enjoy breakfast/brunch items, etc. The Walk provides the opportunity for individuals who are homeless and individuals who are stably housed to come together as a unified community. We encourage individuals, families, groups, and pets to participate! Additional Event and Ticketing information can be found using this link: Homeless Awareness Day Events.

Old Pine Community Center opens their doors to the homeless every Sunday morning to offer showers, food, and shelter. The Street Dog Coalition will be hosting a clinic on Sunday, 12/2, on the steps outside the community center. They will have extra leashes and can watch people’s animals outside while they go in to shower and/or get a bite to eat. (Animals are not permitted in the building.)
