Reviews for Pet Project for Pets, Inc.
They never turn anyone away that has a need and are 100% dedicated to all animals in need.They definitely walk the walk...
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.
Thank you for the kind, efficient, and effective services you provide. Thank you for keeping the bond between pets and owners strong! Please continue to let the community know how to help keep supporting this nonprofit!
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.
After learning about the great work the Pets project does for needy people in our community, I decided to turn my annual pool party into a fundraiser. We're on our 3rd year and keep raising more money each time. Sue, the director, makes it supper easy with promotional material. I was given a nice letter perfect for use as an IRS receipt. Don't hesitate to get involved with this great charity.
I found the Pet Project by chance and it has given me another way to help more animals. I foster and do other volunteer work to rehabilitate animals and find them homes.
This great non-profit does what no one else does, they help people keep their pets when faced with difficult circumstances. Keeping families together prevents the trauma to the pet, the grief of having to give your dog to a shelter/rescue and is less expensive for taxpayers.
The thrift store, Hidden Treasures, is an undiscovered gem in Fort Lauderdale.
Find a treasure and help animals!
The Pet projects is a great organization . I went in the hospital for heat surgery the pet projects fostered my dog at no charge. It was a relief to know that my pet companion was well cared for while I was incapacitated. if not for the pet projects the cost would have been very expensive might not have been able to afford it since I am disabled am very grateful to the Pet projects for their invaluable assistance in my time of need. besides they offer monthly food bank services every month and canine and feline vaccines. Thanks Pet projects
I volunteer with Pet Project and have been a volunteer with many other animal groups in the past. I would rate Pet Project as one of the best. They address a unique concern in the community - helping people in financial crises (mostly due to medical conditions) feed and care for their pets. Without Pet Project, these animals would add to the overwhelming shelter population. The only funding is through donations and a rare grant or two. I would love to see this organization gain more recognition in the community, so that it can continue to grow to meet the ever increasing demand they are facing.
Great store, nice people, excellent cause! Please donate or volunteer your time!
