PetSmart Kicks Off FPSC Grand Opening

PetSmart helped Family Promise celebrate our grand opening August 12 by donating $35,000 to construct kennels for our families cats and dogs. Our pets are part of our families and because of the PetSmart donation, many of our families will be able to bring their pet family members to our network.114_140812_family_promise_petsmart

Executive Director Jeff Wilhite told our guests that before we were done with our construction, we had to turn down a family earlier this year because they had a pet and were living in their car. The mom said that it was traumatic enough that they were enduring homelessness but she could not give up their dog and subject her 5 and 7 year-olds to another blow. Unfortunatly, we still do not know where this family is but we now have the facilities to host families with pets. Thank you PetSmart and volunteers.
