We know pets are family. We help families stay together.
People & Pets Together assists families facing economic hardship by providing pet food to food shelves in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul metropolitan area, by operating a pet food shelf in Minneapolis (the first dedicated pet food shelf in Minnesota), with a veterinary assistance grant program, and through additional programs that keep pets and families together.
Pets help people live happier and healthier lives. The companionship of a pet can be even more important during times of economic hardship.
People & Pets Together, formerly The Pet Project, was founded in 2009 in response to the global economic downturn and heartbreaking stories of people who were forced to give up their pets due to financial hardship. Our mission is to support the relationships that people have with their pets, and to prevent the surrender of pets during times of economic crisis.
