The Pet Project is an amazing non-profit organization that provides whatever is needed to keep companion animals in their homes. I first learned about Pet Project through Mike Camardello, who is now on the Board. I have donated many items of clothing, furniture and money to help my favorite charity. Being an animal advocate, I am so proud of Mike, the other board members whose names I don't know, Sue, and the many great volunteers that give of themselves to help animals. God Bless the Pet Project for Pets! They also provide pick-up for very large items.

The Pet Project for Pets provides an invaluable service to those who need it the most. I have been working with clients of the Pet Project for Pets over the last year, videotaping their stories. For these people, their pets are often their only companions. Unfortunately, many of these people face giving up their pets due to financial burdens placed on them. With the help of the Pet Project for Pets, these people have been able to continue feeding and caring for their pets in their own homes. The Pet Project for Pets is an incredible service, helping hundreds of people maintain a happy, healthy home with their loving animals.

I joined forces with the Pet Project for Pets early this year. The mission of this fantastic organization is second to none. Keeping pets in their homes with those who love and care for them is paramount. I'm glad to be part of this organization and urge everyone to contribute to this worthy cause.

I have known Pet Project for Pets for about ten years. I have watched them grow and do amazing things. It is sometimes a 24 hour, 7 days a week job but they persevere and never complain. They now feed 1,100 dogs a month through their Food Co-op on a monthly basis. My hat is off to the fine work they do.

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!
