I was introduced to the Pet Project by the Franciscans at my parish of Saints Francis and Claire Church. The Pet Project is a unique non-profit that goes above and beyond to ensure that folks can keep their closest, most-loving companions with them when they need them the most. These companions, of course, are people's pets. What could be harder than dealing with illness or hardship and then learning that that pain will be compounded because you have to surrender your pet. Pet Project stops that from happening. Pet Project's vocation is compassionate and kind. Every day, Sue Martino, along with the Pet Project Board, aspire to the mission of helping People and saving Pets.
