I found out about Pet Project for Pets at a parking lot sale. After a short time of checking it out I found it to be an excellent charity. They're helping a lot of people who if we didn't help would lose their animal(s). That's the main reason I volunteer. I was in a situation a short time ago where I had to figure out how to keep my dog. I wish I had known about an organization like this then.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing how our clients come in with their animals and they are smiling. It's one less worry for those who would have possibly had to give their pet away.

Helping people that love animals as much as I do.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

take care of a lot more animals

I must tell you that when people learn more about this organization they are struck in the heart. We are the Pinnacle for maintaining The Human/Companion Animal Bond. This is done by helping ones who are financially burdened or Medically challenged and my lose the one thing which may be only what they really have besides material objects. By us being able to help them keep their pet..They live happier and healthier daily lives..

The Pet Project provides the means for people who are financially or medically challenged to be able to keep their pets. In so doing it keeps pets out of shelters or worse while preserving the human / animal bond. The Pet Project is a unique organization and I personally experienced the importance of it's work when I delivered pet food to a few of the disbled clients and listened to their stories about how much their pets mean to them. One client told me that an alarm had gone off in her home while she was sleeping, her dog woke her up and in the dark guided her to the front door. Fortunately, there was no emergency in this case but had there been it was her pet who would have saved her. When I have looked into the eyes of the peole we serve and their pets I can see the greatfulness they have for what we do at Pet Project and for me it is the most rewarding work I have ever done.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Every day I experience the results of what the Pet Project does for clients and their pets. I read the thank yous and I see the people who come to our office and ask for our help.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand these services to other areas. Also expand the role of the Pet Project to do a Lifetime Fostaering program where there would be animals taken from shelters and placed in the homes of people who want a pet but cannot afford to provide for them.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the fact that we are helping both people and animlas

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Courteous, kind, caring, knowledegable

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Expand to many more locations and keep animals out of shelters and help the people who love their pets. Lifetime fostering program which would save more animals. Retirement home for pets who will never be adopted.

Ways to make it better...

We were in a position to expand our services to other areas

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The funds. We are not a shelter, therefore, the pet food companies do not help us. We must pay retail prices for pet food which limits us as to other services we could be providing such as vet care.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Our other challenge is veternarian care. We have a few local vets that discount their prices for our clients but it is not enough.

Tell your story here and help others understand this charity I spend one day a week giving my time and helping out at the Pet Project Thrift Store, and I'm also involved with their community outreach projects. This is a great cause and i have supported this organization for years, both personally and through the business I work for. I hope they continue to support those in need and to grow larger in the years to come.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The effectiveness of this organization and the help it gives to its clients really is great. It makes me feel great to donate my time and efforts to this cause.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a larger space for the thrift store. We have so many donations that we have to store much of it until there is room to display it.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Knowing that my time and effort is going to a good cause

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very supportive and excited about whatever task they were given, especially at fund-raising events.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Support more and more people in the community know the joy of keeping their beloved pets close to them during the hard times.

Ways to make it better...

The thrift store was open longer hours.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Finding funds to support even more clients. Despite all of the fund-raising events they do, there is always a need for more.

One thing I'd also say is that...

anyone who has spare time and is looking for a valuable place to give their time, this is the place to be!

The Pet Project is a valuable service for both pets and ill people who want to keep them. It enhances both animal and human lives. The terminally ill are often under served and forgotten about in this country (as are the elderly)I think the Pet Project deserves more funding and media attention for the wonderful work they do. They deliver food, provide vaccinations and many other services that keep the pets healthy and safe. The human animal bond is invaluable in many folks lives and for the cost of a few cans of cat food we can make such a difference.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have meet a few of the volunteers and staff and they are all compassionate and professional people.

I have a pet rescue, so we get people giving up their pets all the time but not everyone wants to, they just need financial help. The Pet Project has been able to help some of the terminally ill people keep their pets by providing pet food and veterinarian care. For pet lovers not being to have you fur kid is heartbreaking especially when you are going through a devastating time. The Pet Project also places the pets in qualifies home when their owners pass. Their cause has blessed many people and pets all over the country!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Sometimes I have been thanked he ill pet owner, after, for connecting them to The Pet Project. Their positive effect on lives goes far beyond my direct experience as other rescuers & people in our local S. Fl. pet community this this group praise!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them more funding so they couple help more people and pets.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Knowing the people and the pet can be together.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Kind and compassionate.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Expand to help people having hard financial times not just the terminally ill. This would in turn save more pets lives since so many are being given up to high kill shelters in our current economy so millions of healthy pets die for lack of shelter space.

Ways to make it better...

In my dealings with them, I haven't had any problems or been able to see ways to enhance their organization, except money! That is the key for all of our Non-Profits!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

They have a dedicated people running it, they just need money. Like my dog rescue, one dogs vetting can cost us thousands of dollars! So we do fundraisers every other week to pay for vet care.

One thing I'd also say is that...

This organization helps enhance peoples lives and saves pets lives.

I first heard about this wonderful organization from a volunteer. She shared that someone she knew was beaten serverly and was unabe to care for his pet. The Pet Project for Pets took the man's dog in, cared for it and placed it in a forever home. The original owner had no hope of recovery and eventually pased away. I attended a number of fundraisers and found the groups organizer's to be wonderful, kind, caring people providing loving care to pets, when the owner was unable to care for them. I am so glad this organiztion exists, as I could easily find myself in need of their services, as a single person. When I heard they have a thrift shop, I cleaned my closets out and donated a huge amount of goods. They came out and collected everything, even though I offered to deliver it myself. I am wiling to do anything in my power to support the Pet Project for Pets.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have heard about the wonderful. loving care that the group has provided.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make the organization well known. It is in need of some PR, making the community more familiar with the services they provide

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the fun, energetic, loving members

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

the best, kind, loving, hardworking, animal and people lovers

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Save all the pets that are in need of assistance, by providing food, veterinary care, foster care and sometimes placing the pet in a home, when the owner is incapable of caring for the pet.

Ways to make it better...

the entire community knew the wonderful services they provide

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

fundraising and PR

One thing I'd also say is that...

100% percent of the funds raised go directly to care of the pets, not any administrative costs like most animal welfare groups .

I have worked at several outdoor street festivals where the pet project has a booth.I met many people who have been helped, or who had a friend helped by this organization.

Pet project is unique in its approach. They provide pet food, pet vaccines and flea medication, in home pet care, and funds for vet care to terminally ill, disabled, elderly, crime victims, and people who have lost their jobs. In this way, Pet Project preserves the Human/Animal bond, which is documented to have healing benefits. The pet remains in a loving home, instead of a shelter, or prematurely euthanized. Pet Project has administrative costs underwritten, so 100% of donations goes to client services.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The thanks I get when a client is able to feed his or her pet. Our clients lose so much with their poor health. the ability to keep their companion animal means the world to them. Keeping an animal out of a shelter, and in a home is important to me.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to let more people know about it! Research I have conducted on illness and elderly in our area indicates we are only reaching a fraction of potential clients. I would also like to reach more potential volunteers and donors.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Seeing how happy our clients are with their pets.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very caring and compassionate, with strengths that are used in different areas of the organization.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand services to reach all who need our service. We could also get more animals out of shelters and rescues and into loving homes. Pet Project would subsidize the cost of pet care for the remainder of the pet's life..

Ways to make it better...

There were more volunteers willing to give a little time for client services or outreach. We could do more with more hands.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Letting people know we exist! Everyone I tell about The Pet Project thinks it's a wonderful program. Also, in this economy, the request for services in increasing daily, which is why we expanded to the recently unemployed. However, donations are slowing.

One thing I'd also say is that...

With 100% of donations going to client services, and not to administrative costs, it is one of the best organizations out there.
