Welcome to the Pets in Need Project Page!

This is where we are sharing the story of our veterinary relief mission to help pets in need.

Providing free veterinary care and supplies to pets of the homeless.

The Pets in Need Project was launched in response to COVID-19 and the economic hardships faced by the homeless and those who became homeless due to layoffs.  With fewer resources than ever, the pets of the homeless are incredibly vulnerable.  The ElleVet founders, Christian and Amanda, decided that help was needed now and help was on the way in the form of a 38 foot RV serving as a mobile relief vehicle. The “ElleVan” is traveling for 2 months throughout California and going where there is the most poverty and homelessness to provide care for animals and their people who need a helping hand.
