I have been a volunteer for almost 1 year... I LOVE what the Pet Project organization is doing...As a volunteer I go out on delivery.. each month and I have taken bags and bags, of Pet food, cat litter and many treats..to our pets home....due to our clients illness..
I have seen and spoken with many of our clients and hearing from the clients
because of the Pet Project they are able to keep their pets at home with them...and not in a shelter... lots of appreciation in each of the clients eyes and their pets..

Pet Project for Pet is a wonderful organization, and as a volunteer I will continued my volunteer service for the LOVE of the Pets and Pet owner...

I have always been an Animal Advocate - a year after retiring I began considering options of activities to keep me occupied. I explored several possibilities - The Pet Project for Pets caught my attention - did my research and decided to give it a try. The Pet Project has afforded me not only the opportunity to help animals in need but to help their human counterparts who for various reasons are in vital need of assistance - both financially and physically. Making monthly deliveries of pet food to those who are home bound ,or without transportation or unable to afford to purchase food and supplies - who without The Pet Project would not be able to keep their pets at home as a vital part of their family.
Helping to keep People in need together with their pets gives me a great sense
of accomplishment - as well as making me thankful for being independent & able to help those less fortunate.

I am an animal lover, especially dogs. I had a magnificent dog for 17 years, her name was Mallory. After her passing, my career travel demands prevented me from adding a pet to my busy lifestyle.

Having recently moved to the Wilton Manors area, I was introduced to "The Pet Project for Pets". I immediately fell in love with their mission (unique to all other pet related organizations I had been introduced to), to aid the elderly, disabled, terminally ill, etc. to financially afford to keep their pets by providing food, veterinarian services, etc. - especially when the owners need the companionship of their pets most.

My first event to join was the Bowl-A-Thon. I was able to pull together 25 friends, creating 5 bowling teams, to bowl alongside multiple other organized teams. Our collective efforts helped The Pet Project for Pets to surpass their initial goal of $10k and raise $20+k. My extreme belief in this organization motivated me personally to raise the largest total donation amount.

As 2016 President of the South East Florida Apartment Association (SEFAA), I am now trying to explore ways SEFAA can become an intricate part of supporting The Pet Project for Pets.

Presently I am working on recruiting people to join Push Up for Pets, attempting to secure some privately owned gyms to take on the challenge. Additionally, I am recruiting people to join the Paws 4 Paws event at local dog parks. I am planning on recruiting for both of these events from local pet friendly apartment communities and any/all other avenues I can think of.

I am V.P. over 3 corporate divisions for the nations largest tax credit developer/owner/management company, president of the 2nd largest apartment association in the state of Florida and a national keynote speaker for the multi-family housing industry - my life is crazy busy. But this organization captured my undivided attention, proved itself to be extremely worthy and deserved to have me reorganize my priorities and make it a top priority in my life!

Proactively keeping pets out of shelters, providing assistance to those in need, insuring pet owners their pets love when they need it most, fostering pets who unfortunately lose their owners and finding pets their forever home - truly a noble cause that deserves all of our attention and resources.

LOVE THIS ORGANIZATION!

Without the recent help providing food for my indoor/outdoor 8 rescue cats I would have had to take them to a shelter.My fixed income could not cover the expense and have not been able to find pt work.They are dedicated volunteers and help so many struggling to keep
their pets part of their life.I am telling my neighbors who need help too.

I donate to Pet Project for Pets often as I believe in this organization's ability to help the community. I encourage others to donate what they can to this organization as well. Keeping the bond between pet owners and pets is something the Pet Project for Pets continues to spread education about and continues to promote. Thank you Pet Project for all that you do!

THE PET PROJECT FOR PETS Saved my life had I not gotten a care dog when I did I would not be here today !
They gave me the opportunity since I could barely afford to feed myself well enough a Dog!! Because i was Diagnosed with AIDS and Kaposi;s Sarcoma stage 4 Cancer systemic that covered 98% of my body in July of 2008, Not only scared externally and Mentally as well my Doctors and Therapist both said I needed to adopted a care Dog.. just after being on Aggressive Chemotherapy and Radiation for a year and in total seclusion which turned me into pretty much a Hermit. that would not leave the house just to Doctors and home ,
When got him "Lucky" he in turn gave me something to live for something alive that relied on me ! you see this nonprofit The pet Project for pets is Powerful not only do they help keep a dog alive, but they keep Humans alive as well,
I found this amazing Shih Tzu named "Lucky" very appropriately, He brought life back to the lifeless and broken me.
Without THE PET PROJECT FOR PETS and Sue Martino I would not be typing this today !! nor doing what I do today, and that's Advocate for people with HIV and AIDS I sit on the Planning Council and almost all Committees at (HIVPC) yes* We gather Information about what people living with HIV/AID needs,
*To decide how much Money should be spent for HIV/AIDS related services,
* To evaluate whether or not these services are meeting the needs of the people living with HIV/AIDS ..And we always could use more volunteers from the Community, I also hold a seat on (SFAN ) South Florida AIDS network and that is very helpful you meet everyone from all parts of the HIV/AIDS world, and yes while I only live on Disability and take 41 Meds a day to stay alive!! I could not be happier doing something that helps others, So to Sue Martino and her crew and Jerry Schultz and his heart of Gold who he and his crew at Mona's in july just raised $14,00.00 dollars for the pet project and many other. I say Thank you from Bottom of my heart !!
We are Living in a world of people who don't know what the word Empathy even is anymore well I am here to tell you it pulsates through their every vane and hearts

The mission of this organization is so simple and the need they address is so obvious it's hard to believe there aren't others like it. But there arent. This passionate bunch of volunteers (there's only one paid person) has made a difference in the lives of thousands of pets and the owners who might have had to give them up due to age, illness or hardshi but for Pet Project's work. Support their work. Visit their thrift shop. Volunteer.
