COMMUNITY PET PROJECT INC

  • 7 people are interested

Community Pet Project is a non-profit dedicated to helping the homeless and economically fragile citizens of our county keep their pets with them. We provide pet food and other material needs, and financial assistance with vet bills in order to fulfill that mission. Since we rely on donations, we participate in a number of fundraising events around Hillsborough County and we are seeking Volunteers to help us staff tables at those events.

PO Box 7206, Seffner, FL 33583, US

Mission Statement

We believe that loving our pets is not defined by socioeconomic status and that, for some people, pets are their only lifeline. Therefore, our mission is to help homeless and economically individuals and families in Hillsborough County with the basic needs (food, treats, bowls, collars, leashes, beds, etc.) for their pets to enable them to keep them. We also assist with medical expenses.

Description

We rely entirely on donations, so most of our efforts are directed at holding fundraising events throughout the year. We participate in the quarterly homeless outreach events coordinated by the area law enforcement agencies. Throughout the year we provide individuals and families with deliveries of the basic necessities and financial assistance with medical needs. We have partnerships with a number of veterinary clinics and boarding facilities. Although our efforts are directed at pets, we also work with their owners to put them in touch with organizations that will provide them with the services they need.
