The Pet Project for Pets provides an invaluable service to those who need it the most. I have been working with clients of the Pet Project for Pets over the last year, videotaping their stories. For these people, their pets are often their only companions. Unfortunately, many of these people face giving up their pets due to financial burdens placed on them. With the help of the Pet Project for Pets, these people have been able to continue feeding and caring for their pets in their own homes. The Pet Project for Pets is an incredible service, helping hundreds of people maintain a happy, healthy home with their loving animals.
I am an animal lover, especially dogs. I had a magnificent dog for 17 years, her name was Mallory. After her passing, my career travel demands prevented me from adding a pet to my busy lifestyle.
Having recently moved to the Wilton Manors area, I was introduced to "The Pet Project for Pets". I immediately fell in love with their mission (unique to all other pet related organizations I had been introduced to), to aid the elderly, disabled, terminally ill, etc. to financially afford to keep their pets by providing food, veterinarian services, etc. - especially when the owners need the companionship of their pets most.
My first event to join was the Bowl-A-Thon. I was able to pull together 25 friends, creating 5 bowling teams, to bowl alongside multiple other organized teams. Our collective efforts helped The Pet Project for Pets to surpass their initial goal of $10k and raise $20+k. My extreme belief in this organization motivated me personally to raise the largest total donation amount.
As 2016 President of the South East Florida Apartment Association (SEFAA), I am now trying to explore ways SEFAA can become an intricate part of supporting The Pet Project for Pets.
Presently I am working on recruiting people to join Push Up for Pets, attempting to secure some privately owned gyms to take on the challenge. Additionally, I am recruiting people to join the Paws 4 Paws event at local dog parks. I am planning on recruiting for both of these events from local pet friendly apartment communities and any/all other avenues I can think of.
I am V.P. over 3 corporate divisions for the nations largest tax credit developer/owner/management company, president of the 2nd largest apartment association in the state of Florida and a national keynote speaker for the multi-family housing industry - my life is crazy busy. But this organization captured my undivided attention, proved itself to be extremely worthy and deserved to have me reorganize my priorities and make it a top priority in my life!
Proactively keeping pets out of shelters, providing assistance to those in need, insuring pet owners their pets love when they need it most, fostering pets who unfortunately lose their owners and finding pets their forever home - truly a noble cause that deserves all of our attention and resources.
LOVE THIS ORGANIZATION!
Without the recent help providing food for my indoor/outdoor 8 rescue cats I would have had to take them to a shelter.My fixed income could not cover the expense and have not been able to find pt work.They are dedicated volunteers and help so many struggling to keep
their pets part of their life.I am telling my neighbors who need help too.
I visited the thrift store run by Pet Project for Pets and was delighted. The store had a great selection of merchandise and a really really nice new boutique. I love supporting a non profit that has such a fantastic goal - keeping people and their pets together!!
The Pet Project is a valuable service for both pets and ill people who want to keep them. It enhances both animal and human lives. The terminally ill are often under served and forgotten about in this country (as are the elderly)I think the Pet Project deserves more funding and media attention for the wonderful work they do. They deliver food, provide vaccinations and many other services that keep the pets healthy and safe. The human animal bond is invaluable in many folks lives and for the cost of a few cans of cat food we can make such a difference.
I have a pet rescue, so we get people giving up their pets all the time but not everyone wants to, they just need financial help. The Pet Project has been able to help some of the terminally ill people keep their pets by providing pet food and veterinarian care. For pet lovers not being to have you fur kid is heartbreaking especially when you are going through a devastating time. The Pet Project also places the pets in qualifies home when their owners pass. Their cause has blessed many people and pets all over the country!
