Get Involved

All along, desperately trying to respond to each new public housing situation, we relied upon free services from veterinarian friends and literally begged for funding while the life of an animal hung in the balance and the clock was ticking. It wasn’t until a few foundations discovered our work that we finally breathed our first sigh of relief. 99% of our funds go directly to programming.

Docs From The Block is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, donations are tax-deductible. Our Employer Identification Number (EIN) is 90-0129249.

Our Funding Priorities

  • Basic Health Care for One Animal. $75 covers the average cost of spaying/neutering, vaccinating, and the public housing veterinary certificate so that a family can register and live with their pet.
  • Basic Health Care Services for All Animals for One Month. $500 covers the average monthly expenses for all animals in all public housing properties.

Volunteers Needed

  • Whiskers – drive unwanted animals to our shelter partners or families to veterinary clinics
  • Project Managers – we are seeking projects managers in three areas: a) to promote Walking Tours by a public housing resident; b) in-kind donations of canned cat food for the many public housing residents caring for community cats; and c) to fund raise for advanced medical needs.
