Quick FAQ's for volunteering
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. People & Pets Together was one of the first such surrender prevention programs in the Midwest.
In early 2016, we opened our pet food shelf in Minneapolis.
In 2021, People & Pets Together merged with Secondhand Hounds (www.secondhandhounds.org).
We know pets are family. We help families stay together.
