“As an animal lover, I have always supported no-kill shelters. Pet Project is one of my personal favorites. Non-profit organizations such as this are necessary for the survival of countless animals in the area, and without them, innocent lives would be lost. I have volunteered at Pet Project in the past. It was such a rewarding experience. To help so many animals in just a few hours of my time was heartwarming.  It was admittedly sad to see just how many precious animals are homeless and had been abused, abandoned, neglected, etc., but PPI gives them a chance at finding love and companionship in their fur-ever homes.

When I volunteered there, I got a chance to play with all of the dogs, one at a time, at the shelter in the play area.  It was so fun to socialize and bond with each one and learn their personalities. Without Pet Project, hundreds of helpless, lonely pets would be euthanized.  Perhaps the saddest part is that no matter what their story, these animals would never have been given a chance or a say-so.

To say that the people at PPI are loving, caring and dedicated is a major understatement.  They are very friendly and give their all to help each dog or cat find his or her family.  Their dedication makes a huge difference in the community and in the lives of the pets.  Not only do the pets find love and happiness, but so do their new families.  The animals have a place where they can feel safe and loved. The people at the shelter have each pet’s best  interest at heart, and do everything they can to nurse them back to health.

I remember one dog, Boo, who had been beaten and neglected.  She was extremely thin and fragile, with many injuries, wounds, etc. However, with the help of PPI, she was able to totally turn her life around, get adopted, and finally be loved and cared for by her new family.  There are countless success stories, and surely many more to come. As I mentioned before, Pet Project is a non-profit organization that is run by volunteers.  They take the responsibility of caring for the animals and the shelter, and ensuring the pets’ happiness and well-being.  They further carry out their responsibilities by taking the initiative to have every animal that comes into the shelter spayed or neutered to prevent future strays.  The adoption fees are strictly to cover those costs, and all monetary donations to the shelter are used to benefit the animals.

Because my family and I feel so strongly that PPI is an essential part of the community, we donate toys, collars, money, etc. to the organization at Christmas time.  We feel that because it is such a fantastic organization and can use all the help it can get, they definitely deserve as many donations as possible.  PPI making a difference in the lives of so many. Regardless of where Pet Project is, though, as long as it is still around, it will continue making a major positive impact in the lives of people and pets alike.”
