I started volunteering for Animal House Project several months ago. This is a special group of people who do amazing work. AHP is helping people with financial hardship keep their animals by working tirelessly with area organizations, receiving donations and partnering with the Pennsylvania SPCA to provide low-cost vaccinations. It not only allows these individuals to retain and care for furry family members, it prevents unnecessary surrenders to already overcrowded local shelters. Animal House Project is truly a fantastic organization that I am honored to be involved with.

I just recently started volunteering for this wonderful and passionate organization. The Animal House Project is incredibly passionate about what they do, and they make sure their clients and their pets are satisfied. I have pets of my own and it gives me such comfort to know that the Animal House Project exists. The people I volunteer with are so friendly. They all want to help those who need help taking care of their pets. Animal House Project provides food, low-cost vaccinations and also a low-cost Spay/Neuter Program. In order for us to do our job, we need donations. Please donate what you can, and help us make those in need pet owners happy.

I have been a Volunteer for past year for this great Organization. I am currently the Volunteer Coordinator and enjoy every minute of it. Marybeth (President) and her husband Steve (Logistics Manager) are very devoted to this cause and are the reason this Org is top notch.
It gives me such pleasure to help our clients who truly love their pets and need some help in providing food, low cost vaccinations or taking advantage of our affiliation with the Spay/Neuter program. We do "Whatever it takes" to help these people and they love us for it!
We need donations, so please give whatever you can to help us as we continue to grow our client population every month! Thank you

I have been volunteering with Animal House Project for a couple of years and I can't say enough about this great organization. It seeks to solve the problem of over crowded shelters by allowing pets to stay in their homes rather than being surrendered due to financial hardship. The organization provides free food, reduced cost spay/neuter and immunizations and education about proper pet care. It feels so good knowing that I am helping to keep beloved pets in their homes and out of over crowded shelters.

I am a volunteer at Animal House Project and it makes my heart swell with pride when I see the families that are so grateful the food we give them so that they can keep their loving companions with them. We have to thank many people who donate both money and food to support our efforts. We provide food for Dogs and cats as well as reptiles, birds, rabbits and even some horses.
Mary Beth and Steven give allot of their time to make this organization a success.
