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!

Ways to make it better...

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 .

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.
