Project Precious is a wonderful organization that puts a great deal of effort and care into rescuing animals from all walks of life. I worked with PPR to adopt my dog, and I found the process to be professional and thorough. Their staff was quick to respond to all of my questions and I was provided with detailed and honest information about my dog’s healthcare needs and personality. PPR has helped so many animals in need, including my dog, find a loving forever home. My life is better because of PPR and their dedication to animals!

Many rescue organizations do great work saving animals from cruelty, abandonment and euthanization. Project precious goes a step beyond by saving the "unadoptables" that few other rescues will take. Those with serious health issues, untreated injuries, and seniors abandoned by their owners. Many rescues will step away from the expense of surgeries and treatments for these dogs and cats that is necessary to be able to place them in good homes. Not the volunteers for Project Precious. They step forward when others step back. Please visit their facebook page and read the stories about the happy endings for so many of those rescued and adopted. They will touch your heart.

Many rescues support our animal friends but Project Precious supports animals in extreme need and those who many others would pass by. Some of these are the most difficult of medical cases or the elderly. Not only do they take on these heartbreaking cases but they are able to help get them treated and adopt them out to welcoming families. This is what rescue is all about!

I don’t have enough great things to say about Project Precious Rescue. I was never a big animal person growing up but my husband always wanted a dog. We reached out to Kristy who patiently took her time to find us just the right pup! Within minutes of Max coming into our house it was obvious he was ours forever! 4 years later my four year old daughter makes sure everyone knows she has a brother named Max and he’s her favorite! They are an absolute amazing nonprofit! No doubt when we are ready to expand our happy to another four legged pet, we will definitely be contacting Kristy and the organization!

I fostered cats and kittens for PPR over the course of their first few years. They have always been responsive and helpful to their fosters and provide all necessary supplies. When PPR pulled a four month old kitten with a broken rear leg and pelvis, who was likely going to need amputation and low-activity recovery, I didn’t hesitate to foster him. (It was no secret he was going to be a foster failure from the beginning!) And I’m so grateful to PPR for rescuing him. They never shy away from the difficult cases. Every animal that comes into their organization receives the very best in every facet of their care— from initial intake and assessment to selection of their forever home. Simply put PPR is a superbly run organization.

I am so impressed with this rescue organization. They have a phenomenal leader, wonderful fosters, and associated medical institutions that are top-of-the-line. They do everything possible to give every rescue the medical attention they need and to care for them until a proper forever home is found. I have never seen such a dedicated group, and I've seen a lot of rescue non-profits.

My dog was in the hospital for 7 days after getting hit by a car. This is when I first came across Project Precious Rescue when they had just taken on Jack's heart-breaking case and had him in the same hospital. Every night after work my fiance and I would spend time at the hospital visiting our dog and there were always people from Project Precious visiting Jack. I thought it was amazing that people from Project Precious Rescue took the time at the end of the day to make sure Jack had the opportunity to experience love and comfort that he deserved. I started following Project Precious on social media and came to realize this rescue has really taken on some horrible cases without hesitation and truly made an amazing impact on every dog's life that they've helped.

I just adopted Beanz a few weeks ago through Project Precious. After my experience with fostering him and going through the adoption process, you can tell how much they care about these dogs that they take in. Project Precious truly deserves all the support the community can give them.

This is one of the few rescue organizations that seek out the un-adoptable, rehabilitate them and find them forever homes.
I recently adopted V, a shepherd mix, that was in very rough shape before Project Precious Rescue was asked to take over his care. They provided V with the absolute best medical attention and an excellent foster home. He was with them for almost 5 years, and in that time they worked with multiple veterinary teams to manage his conditions so that he would one day be able to have a fulfilling life with a family of his own. Most rescues would not have invested the amount of money and time into saving this dog.
I will be forever grateful to Project Precious Rescue, they gave my dog the best care until he and I could find each other!

My husband and I adopted Willy just about a year ago. The process could not have went any smoother. Working with kristy and Stacey was like working with a friend. They made sure our pup was a good fit for our home and we couldn’t possibly love him any more. It’s been the best year since we brought Willy into our home! He was fostered before we adopted him and at 14 weeks was pretty much potty trained, great with people,kids and knew so many training commands. We can’t wait for him to be a big brother to our first baby come Christmas. I would recommend ppr 110%!!

I can't say enough good things about my experience with PPR Inc! I am so grateful to them for bringing Stella (formerly Star) into our lives. I am sure that she would not even be alive if it were not for the quick action on their part to take her when her owner gave her up in the middle of a delivery of four puppies that went bad...and to get her immediate medical attention. Rachel, her foster Mom, is fabulous, and I am sure it's because of her that Stella immediately acclimated to our home and our other two dogs. I will be forever indebted to them all! Love, love, LOVE them!

I have fostered two puppies for this nonprofit and what a joy the journey has been. Kristy handles each case with love and adoration for each of her “babies” like she personally is responsible for the rest of their lives. It has been a pleasure to be part of this foundation.

We started our search for a puppy a couple months after our beloved dog had passed away. After a couple weeks of looking, we came across PPR. After filling out an application, we met Rachel who was fostering a litter of 5 puppies. She is a master puppy wrangler, and the best foster mom to all the animals that are lucky enough to cross her doorstep. We ended up adopting two puppies that day, and couldn’t be happier.

We wanted to adopt a dog and had been looking at several animal adoption websites when a friend told us about her experiences (two adoptions) with Project Precious Rescue. On their PPR website, we immediately saw adorable pictures and videos of happy, active dogs/cats enjoying life in wonderful foster homes. There were several dogs that caught our attention, and we thought we’d narrowed it down to a little black puppy from a litter of five. But his brindle colored brother was cute too! Their fabulous foster mother, Rachel, brought both dogs to our house, with food, toys, etc. for a week trial—that was four months ago! We couldn’t imagine our lives without them. PPR makes sure all of their animals are healthy, neutered, micro chipped, up to date on immunizations and socialized; all on a shoestring budget. I continue to look at their Facebook postings and badger my husband about, ‘how many dogs would be too many?!’

We were looking for a companion dog for my son with anxiety. We felt strongly about adopting as opposed to buying a puppy. I figured it would be a simple task to find what we were looking for. Months later and after many, many disappointments a friend tagged me in a Project Precious Facebook post with three puppies they had available. One of the puppies was exactly what we were looking for. I immediately applied for him but didn’t get my hopes up as I had applied for about 30 dogs to no avail. 2 days later my application was approved and I was contacted to arrange a visit. As soon as Rachel brought him to us, we all knew it was meant to be. Fang has been with us for 7 months now and he’s a perfect fit.
I can’t say enough about Project Precious. I’ve worked with a lot of rescues and they were the class of the field. The care they provide these animals with their foster families is bar none. They truly know the personalities of their animals and what types of situations would be a good fit.
I would highly recommend Project Precious to anyone looking to adopt. They made the process quick and simple and their fees are incredibly reasonable. Not to mention I feel like I became part of the Project Precious family!

This rescue thoroughly vets potential adopters to make sure their animals find the best homes! I am so thankful to them for bringing two of my pack to me as well as my parents' pup!

Incredible rescue that does amazing things, especially for serious medical cases and local pets in need!

Passionate about leaving no animal behind, these ladies work tirelessly to save and rescue at risk and sick animals tirelessly. They literally turn no animal away. Thanks to Project Precious Rescue our sweet girl Roxie found us and the rest is happy history. She was adopted in the Dominican Republic, brought to the USA, became sick and was basically abandoned at a local veterinary practice. Thanks to PPR, she was rescued, fostered, cared for and nursed back to health by the most loving angels here on earth. That's PPR in a nutshell: real angels here on earth to all the animals they save and the humans lucky enough to love them.

I started getting involved with Project Precious Rescue by being a foster for them. That didn’t work out to well, as the first kitten and the first dog I ever fostered ended up never leaving! Haha. But they were such an amazing organization to work with. They’re down to earth, knowledgeable, friendly, golden hearted warriors who I was lucky enough to get involved with. After my first two foster failures, I fostered another 6 cats and 3 dogs for them- all of whom found amazing homes thanks to Project Precious’s thorough and in-depth application process. They make sure these animals are ending up in the most amazing of homes! The best part about this group is the animals that they save. The pick the ones who most often get skipped over- medical problems, elderly, etc. They give the underdogs- no pun intended- a fighting chance at a happy and healthy remainder of their life. The people at Project Precious Rescue are truly the most amazing, selfless, and one of a kind people who’s hearts are in it for all the right reasons! I couldn’t have picked a better organization to get involved with.

Project Precious Rescue is an excellent organization! This incredible, caring & selfless staff lovingly saves, rehabilitates and finds homes for so many animals! I am blessed by the addition of Herbie “the Love Bug,” my chihuahua, whom I fostered & then adopted from Project Precious a year ago. They are the best!!
