THE PET PROJECT FOR PETS Saved my life had I not gotten a care dog when I did I would not be here today !
They gave me the opportunity since I could barely afford to feed myself well enough a Dog!! Because i was Diagnosed with AIDS and Kaposi;s Sarcoma stage 4 Cancer systemic that covered 98% of my body in July of 2008, Not only scared externally and Mentally as well my Doctors and Therapist both said I needed to adopted a care Dog.. just after being on Aggressive Chemotherapy and Radiation for a year and in total seclusion which turned me into pretty much a Hermit. that would not leave the house just to Doctors and home ,
When got him "Lucky" he in turn gave me something to live for something alive that relied on me ! you see this nonprofit The pet Project for pets is Powerful not only do they help keep a dog alive, but they keep Humans alive as well,
I found this amazing Shih Tzu named "Lucky" very appropriately, He brought life back to the lifeless and broken me.
Without THE PET PROJECT FOR PETS and Sue Martino I would not be typing this today !! nor doing what I do today, and that's Advocate for people with HIV and AIDS I sit on the Planning Council and almost all Committees at (HIVPC) yes* We gather Information about what people living with HIV/AID needs,
*To decide how much Money should be spent for HIV/AIDS related services,
* To evaluate whether or not these services are meeting the needs of the people living with HIV/AIDS ..And we always could use more volunteers from the Community, I also hold a seat on (SFAN ) South Florida AIDS network and that is very helpful you meet everyone from all parts of the HIV/AIDS world, and yes while I only live on Disability and take 41 Meds a day to stay alive!! I could not be happier doing something that helps others, So to Sue Martino and her crew and Jerry Schultz and his heart of Gold who he and his crew at Mona's in july just raised $14,00.00 dollars for the pet project and many other. I say Thank you from Bottom of my heart !!
We are Living in a world of people who don't know what the word Empathy even is anymore well I am here to tell you it pulsates through their every vane and hearts

The mission of this organization is so simple and the need they address is so obvious it's hard to believe there aren't others like it. But there arent. This passionate bunch of volunteers (there's only one paid person) has made a difference in the lives of thousands of pets and the owners who might have had to give them up due to age, illness or hardshi but for Pet Project's work. Support their work. Visit their thrift shop. Volunteer.

Pet Project For Pets was instrumental in keeping my dog Rudy and me together when no one else was able to help us. it is the best organization "that helps keeps pets in their homes" and can't say enough great things about Sue Martino, Felix, Joel and all the volunteers that help out at all the events and the thrift store!!! There are over 1000 pets that are able to still be a family in their homes that's to Pet Project mine being included!!! God Bless Sue and the whole organization. That's why I'm not only a client but a volunteer as well :-) all the best always, Michael and Rudy!!Z, ruff ruff ruff

I cant rate this agency as a 0 star, so I am forced to rate it as a 1 star. I am a former client of PP4P and when I found out they got rid of Henry Laster that was the best volunteer this agency ever had to their name I immediately told them to cancel my services. Henry Laster really knew how to treat someone. He always returned phone calls unlike the Executive Director Sue Martino. She never returns any phone calls. Henry used to work 7 days a week until his former roommate in Oakland Park, FL. got to them. Henry was a great Client Services representative. I have told many other people that I know to stay away from this agency. They have also stolen property that belonged to Henry Laster such as a netbook, a laptop, digital camera, digital converter box for TV's, antenna's for TV's, a DVD player. DVD's, money, amongst other things. When he called to get his stuff the staff person by the name of Maggie Martino aka Sue Martino's lover told him that none of his sh*t(her exact words)was there. Then he called back and asked to speak with Sue Martino herself and there was a person by the name of Felix DeBruin that answered the phone and he told Henry Laster that he was no longer a client, he was never to step foot on the property again or he would be arrested, and they never want to see him again.
