Never Tear Them Apart Giving Day 2023 - November 15

Charity's Giving Day promises to triple donations to help keep vulnerable people and their pets together

Melbourne-based charitable organisation, Pets of the Homeless (POTH), will be holding their annual Giving Day on November 15th, 2023.

The volunteer-led support service provides pet food, veterinary care, safe shelter and material aid to pet owners who are facing homelessness or severe financial hardship. 

POTH also runs the very 
first Pet Food Bank in Victoria, and has distributed over 1,500,000 much needed meals for Victorian pets in crisis since 2015.

POTH’s annual Giving Day appeal, Never Tear Them Apart, will see all donations made to the organisation on Wednesday 15th November tripled by generous matching partners, including Petstock FoundationScratch, and Sunraysia.

Last year, POTH raised over $300,000 in 24 hours. For 2023, their ambitious goal is to reach $300,000 again. If the goal is achieved, the Never Tear Them Apart Appeal will allow the charity to focus their efforts on helping people and pets for an entire year as well as expand their services to more areas of regional Victoria.
“We have seen the need for our services grow exponentially with the constant rise in cost of living. 
So many people and pets have been severely impacted by the ongoing events of the past few years and with no relief in sight, Pets Of The Homeless is ready to step in to help.” said Yvonne Hong, Founder and CEO, POTH.

Donations for the 2023 Never Tear Them Apart Appeal can be made online from Thursday, 9th November until Thursday 16th November 2023 at:

About Pets of the Homeless (POTH)

Pets of the Homeless (POTH) was founded in 2015, when Yvonne noticed there were no services in Victoria that looked after the pets of people experiencing homelessness. She began carrying pet supplies and food through the streets of Melbourne in a suitcase to hand out to rough sleepers. POTH has since connected with over 55 community support service partners to help distribute pet food across Victoria.
