Over the course of a few years, I have helped For The Love Of Pets by volunteering my time to their cause, and let me tell you, their cause is a great one. Throughout my time with For The Love Of Pets, I have seen many families helped, and have seen the impact that their assistance does have on these families. I have seen pets stay with their families, when otherwise, their families may have had to find a new home for them. I have seen strays find their way into loving families, and have personally helped with many deliveries, and have seen the happiness that even a little pet food can do for a family that has a beloved pet. Overall, For The Love Of Pets is a terrific nonprofit, and a very loving organization.

For The Love Of Pets is a wonderful organization, I've seen first hand how amazing it really is. Helping families that can not afford the every day expenses of a pet, without this organization there would be A lot of hungry and/or hurt furry loved ones around here. Thank you, Karen and keep up the good work!

For the Love of Pets is a great organization. In this tough economy this organization helps furry families stay together by helping human mom and dads with the cost of food, vet expenses, and in some cases foreclosure relief. I have witnessed first hand the happiness and stress release when families are given the means to care for there animals when they thought there only option is to give there furry children away.
