People & Pets Together was started in 2009 and was originally known as The Pet Project. Inspired by the economic recession and the love the founders have for their own pets, it was created to help people keep their pets when crisis strikes. Since its inception, they have worked with Metro area food shelves to provide pet food to people in need. Paws & Pals has conducted two holiday food drives gathering over 500 lbs. of food and pet supplies. Each year we match the amount collected.
