I have been a volunteer for almost 1 year... I LOVE what the Pet Project organization is doing...As a volunteer I go out on delivery.. each month and I have taken bags and bags, of Pet food, cat litter and many treats..to our pets home....due to our clients illness..
I have seen and spoken with many of our clients and hearing from the clients
because of the Pet Project they are able to keep their pets at home with them...and not in a shelter... lots of appreciation in each of the clients eyes and their pets..

Pet Project for Pet is a wonderful organization, and as a volunteer I will continued my volunteer service for the LOVE of the Pets and Pet owner...

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 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.

Without the support of the Pet Project many terminally ill or disabled people would not be able to care for their pets. This organization helps both animals and people.

What a unique & innovative approach to rescue. When chronic/terminal illness strikes, The Pet Project for Pets intervenes BEFORE the crisis keeping beloved animals at home with the humans that cherish & need them. Presently, more than 1050 animal & their pet people have been spared the heartbreak of separation and in so doing, helps lessens the burden on over crowded shelters. The Pet Project supplements pet food & pet care costs. A smart solution to a deeply disturbing situation.

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

Increase revenue so even more animals& people could be served.

I have been volunteering with Pet Project for about a year now helping with publicity outreach. I have worked with numerous non profit organizations and Pet Project has the most heart of any of them. I have never seen so many people so dedicated to their cause. It is such an important organization that helps so many people and I am very proud to be a part of it.
