It is through Sue, that we became aware of a young man and his dog (Sable) who have been homeless for several months. Sable and her dad (Shawn) are very devoted to one another and are their own little family unit. Sable is a sweet friendly girl who is a certified support dog. Her dad takes excellent care of her despite his circumstances. They were living in an environment which became unsafe for Sable, so she and her dad left and without any place to go, they found themselves living in a tent. Through the generosity of strangers, they have been able to stay out of the cold and in a hotel for the last few weeks. We would like to continue to help Shawn and Sable stay out of the cold an in a hotel longer while they look for affordable housing.  We currently have a hotel reservation that ends at the end of April.

If anyone has any leads on any low cost rental housing ($800/month including utilities or less) that allows dogs, please private message us. Housing in exchange for some work might be an option as well, but Sable would need to be able to come along with her Shawn.  They are on low income housing wait lists, but were told that the wait could be as long as 5 years. There are not many shelters that allow dogs. They found one and stayed there for a couple of nights, but then there were complaints from people who were afraid of Sable (even though she is the sweetest thing!), so they had to leave. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you so much!
