My Dog Eats First is a 501(c)(3) homeless outreach organization that serves the homeless with pets in the greater Louisville and Southern Indiana areas. We believe in the healing power of pets and in the love and companionship that these pets bring to the homeless. Our mission is to provide pet food, supplies, and veterinary care for the pets of the indigent and homeless with respect and love weekly. It is estimated that 3.5 million Americans are homeless. Between 5% to 10% of homeless people have pets that provide them companionship, protection, and unconditional love.
