The Strongest Human-Animal Bond Belongs to a Homeless Person and Their Pet

Imagine a family member who is with you 24/7, who provides not only friendship, but security, love and loyalty. Pets of homeless people act as a lifeline to hope and even life itself. Patti Galle, Founder of Nevada County Pets of the Homleless, talks about how we care for a homeless person by caring for their pets.
