Animals are a reminder that we are all more alike than we are different and provide a unique opportunity to connect with and understand each other. If you care about animals, you must also care about people and the impact poverty and prejudice has on both.

Beyond Fences knows what pets mean to all people and we don’t want a system that only cares about and serves those wealthy and privileged. Support our effort to increase access to pet wellness resources for everyone in our community.

Did You Know? As in most cities across the country, right now there is a housing crisis in Durham. Due to gentrification and displacement on top of ongoing struggles of poverty, there are over 900 evictions each month. Beyond Fences is doing our part in raising awareness, holding elected officials accountable, paying pet deposits and providing other support to keep people in their homes and pets with their families.

What We Do

Many under-served neighborhoods lack access to basic pet care resources. Beyond Fences works to fill that gap. We honor people’s love for their pets and proactively reach out to the community to build trusting relationships with families and make connections to keep people and pets happy, healthy and together. We believe that a lack of financial means does not equate to a lack of love for a pet, and we seek to spread this principle through a philosophy of understanding and non-judgment.

Beyond Fences takes a comprehensive approach to our work:

We deliver free services, supplies, information and support to people and their pets.

We work within the animal welfare field to bring attention to how poverty and structural inequity create obstacles to accessing affordable veterinary and pet wellness services.

We participate in and bring our experience to efforts addressing larger systemic issues on institutional discrimination and injustice.
