Serving Hillsborough County, Florida

COMMUNITY PET PROJECT

About

Community Pet Project was organized in 2017 as an all volunteer 501c3 charitable organization serving Hillsborough County, Florida. Many area rescue volunteers often encounter homeless and at-risk people who are desperately trying to care for their pets. For some, their pets are the only reason they are able to survive a life of hopelessness and despair and many end up surrendering their pets to local shelters because they are unable to provide for their pets. The need is great and through the Community Pet Project volunteers work to help these people keep and care for their pets.

Community Pet Project volunteers attend the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office and the Tampa Police Department quarterly community outreach events where they provide homeless and at-risk families pet food and pet supplies such as flea prevention, wormer, grooming supplies, treats, and toys. as well as information regarding veterinary care and spay and neuter surgeries. Financial contributions and product donations are greatly appreciated.

COVID RESPONSE

Established in 2017, our mission was to assist the pets of the homeless and at risk in Hillsborough County.

When COVID hit in March 2020,  we knew we needed to step up and help our community. We were seeing pets being surrendered because to many people were loosing their income.
As of November 8, 2020, we have helped  2,307 dogs and cats get the food that they needed. We have also helped over 3 dozen small animals with food as well.
