The Pet Project does keep pets in their homes and allows so many low income , homebound, elderly, disabled, people with severe illnesses be able to stay with their 4 legged family members. As Client Service Director I am constantly seeing how grateful they are, how the Pet Project has helped them keep their pets with them, which sometimes are the only company they have and could not keep if it wasn't for the organization. When so many animals are surrendered for countless reasons, often euthanized...Providing this care not only helps people with their own emotional wellness, pet wellness and nutrition, but keeps families together, saving so many pets lives and allowing for a better world. Saving so many pets from surrender, euthanasia, mal nutrition, poor health, etc. moreover saving FAMILIES, keeping pets in their homes!
I am the Executive Director for Pet Project for Pets since 2009. The invaluable work that we do for our clients and their pets is immeasurable. We provide pet food, pet supplies and pet medications and vaccines to those individuals who are financially challenged due to illness, disability, aging, economy so that they can KEEP THEIR PETS. It is amazing when clients pick up their pet food and supplies and tell us their stories of how much we have helped them in their lives. They are so grateful for our services. Imagine being diagnosed with a terminal illness and you now have to choose between your own medication or feeding your beloved pet companion...or imagine being that pet who now will have to be surrendered to a shelter and live in a cage wondering what they did wrong...this is what we at Pet Project for Pets make sure does not happen. We keep pets and their humans happily together in their own homes thus preserving the so important Human / Animal bond.
