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.

I was introduced to The Pet Project for Pets through St. Francis Church...a parishioner was looking for a temporary foster home for his cat because he had to go into the hospital. The Pet Project found a temporary home, unfortunately this person did not come out of the hospital and Pet Project found a new home for the cat. This cat was kept out of the shelter system and possible euthanasia. They also provided vaccinations free of charge so this cat would remain healthy in her new home.
I worked in the shelter system locally for years and am very aware of how many animals are put to sleep on a daily basis. It is truly heart shredding.. In many cases there are no other alternatives except to surrender.
I can't imagine having to give up a "family member " . It is a proven statistic that our pets keep us healthy and to not have my pet when I returned home is unimaginable.
The Pet Project for Pets fills a badly needed void in the system that has for the most part been totally ignored. They provide food, vet care and temporary foster care .
I now volunteer...I have been fostering a male cat named Charlie for 3 months after his owner was violently broken into and his apartment destroyed...he himself is living in a shelter trying to get back on his feet...he will get his precious pet back when ready.
The Pet Project for Pets fills a need for our community that no one else does.
