Pet Food Delivery Driver

COMMUNITY PET PROJECT INC

  • 3 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. To fulfill this mission, we provide pet food and other material needs, as well as assistance with vet bills. Due to the impact of COVID-19, an increasing number of families find themselves needing assistance with providing food for their pets. To meet this need, we have implemented a pet food delivery program to help those who are unable to pick up donations. Requests come in via email each week and delivery routes are set up based on location. Deliveries are made each weekend (either Saturday or Sunday); drivers pick the day and a route convenient to them. The food is picked up in Seffner and a route map and contact information for each client is provided.

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.
