The Columbus House

In 2008, Poverty’s Pets founded the Columbus House to provide a safe place for foster dogs to feel loved and to learn how to be a dog. Since then we have helped find homes for over 700 animals. At any given time we have 5-8 dogs in our care, most of which come to us as strays. The house has multiple yards, doggie doors, and gates to provide a home for dogs of all temperaments while keeping safety in mind. If you'd like to donate to support the Columbus House, follow the donate link and specify in the notes what you would like your money to go towards.

Pool Progress Shots

Thanks to the Leslie L Alexander Foundation for their kind and generous donation, we were able to update our doggy pool here at the Columbus House!
