I joined forces with the Pet Project for Pets early this year. The mission of this fantastic organization is second to none. Keeping pets in their homes with those who love and care for them is paramount. I'm glad to be part of this organization and urge everyone to contribute to this worthy cause.

I have known Pet Project for Pets for about ten years. I have watched them grow and do amazing things. It is sometimes a 24 hour, 7 days a week job but they persevere and never complain. They now feed 1,100 dogs a month through their Food Co-op on a monthly basis. My hat is off to the fine work they do.

The Pet Project provides the means for people who are financially or medically challenged to be able to keep their pets. In so doing it keeps pets out of shelters or worse while preserving the human / animal bond. The Pet Project is a unique organization and I personally experienced the importance of it's work when I delivered pet food to a few of the disbled clients and listened to their stories about how much their pets mean to them. One client told me that an alarm had gone off in her home while she was sleeping, her dog woke her up and in the dark guided her to the front door. Fortunately, there was no emergency in this case but had there been it was her pet who would have saved her. When I have looked into the eyes of the peole we serve and their pets I can see the greatfulness they have for what we do at Pet Project and for me it is the most rewarding work I have ever done.
