History and Mission
Poverty’s Pets was established in 2006, under the direction of the Founder and Animal Advocate, Kate Sivolella, with a mission to address animals in low-income and underserved neighborhoods, with a particular focus on spay/neuter clinics. Since 2008, Poverty’s Pets has facilitated the adoption of over 700 animals and provides medical services to over 500 animals each year. We have created a foster home, known as the Columbus House, for any dogs that cross our paths. With a compassionate volunteer network, it is Poverty’s Pets goal to end animal cruelty, suffering, overpopulation and homelessness
Poverty's Pets is 501c3 non-profit.
