Coco's Pet Network; People helping people reunite with their pets
Coco’s Pet Network works to provide a free, not-for-profit service to pet owners who are experiencing “ruff” times. We connect people in need with families who are willing to host their pets until said humans are back on their feet.
We exist to serve people and pets who have been displaced due to domestic violence or loss of their home. Our goal is to find hosts that can safely house as many family pets as possible, from goldfish to horses … and everything in between, with the full intention of reuniting these animals with their human families once they return to a stable living situation.
Many domestic violence shelters and homeless shelters don’t allow animals. Some people even choose to stay in a dangerous situation because they’re unwilling to give away their pets or leave them at the mercy of their abuser. We don’t like that idea either, so we find safe, temporary places for the pets of people who need to immediately focus on their own safety. Crisis is traumatic for animals too so we strive to get them into a stable homes immediately.
In our minds, there’s no time limit on how many weeks stability will take to accomplish or how long a human family will feel love for Miss Kitteh or Sir WooferPants, so we’re filling the gap … in the hopes that we can prevent these beloved members of the family from needlessly taking up shelter space that is meant for unwanted animals. Please don’t get us wrong. Fosters, adoptions and shelters are fantastic alternatives to allowing a pet to live in danger or an unhealthy environment. We would never want Spot’s safety or Mitten’s mental health to be in jeopardy. We’re here for survivors who just can’t live without Big Bessie or Senior Slithers, because we feel ya!
