|Pet-Friendly Homeless Shelters?

Today, I met a woman at a bus stop who was in a really rough place: she's homeless and can't find a shelter that'll let her stay with her cat. It's more important to her to stay with the cat than to get inside--she's got some pretty serious mental health problems, and it's functionally a therapy animal, but because she doesn't have the official paperwork saying so, no dice. The cat itself is super sweet and obviously well cared for.|
I'm bringing her some blankets and cat food tomorrow, and I figured that in the meantime, since I have access to the internets and a phone, I can hunt around for potentially useful resources. I've tried the PWCL, who thought Transition Projects or JOIN might be worth a shot; any other ideas?
