Make a Difference for a Furry Friend!
Who We Are
Pay It Forward For Pets helps improve the lives of both people and “rescued” pets through special programs.
Our organization manages 6 programs that directly benefit the public and offers human resources and funding to county shelters and local rescue organizations in collaboration efforts to expedite adoptions and end euthanasia.
Pay It Forward For Pets is a 501c3 nonprofit organization and secures 100% funding from direct public support, grants, fundraising and planned estate giving.
Senior Pets for Senior Citizens
We fund the adoption fee of senior pets being adopted by a person 55 years and older. The benefits are impressive for both the senior and senior pet.
Canine Behavioral Assessment & Enrichment
Many dogs do not reveal their true personalities when they are stressed-out in a shelter environment. In an effort to reduce the possibility of euthanasia, a behavioral assessment is performed when a dog displays behaviors of concern.
Pets For Vets – No Buddy Left Behind
We fund and manage the complex logistics to bring a pet back to the USA that served as a family member to a soldier while overseas. We also fund the pet adoption for vets that have served our country.
Critical Care Assistance Fund
We provide funding for the critical care of a beloved pet and spay / neuter assistance. We assess clients on a case-by-case basis and determine if applicants meet the strict qualifiers for assistance with lifesaving and pain alleviating treatments.
Humane Education Curriculum
We teach humane education, compassion for animals and promote adoption of rescued pets to youth in a classroom environment and at public forums.
Collaboration between PIFFP and the Akron Police Department has made for perfect partners on this 2018 calendar project, designed to raise awareness of the plight of animals that end up in animal control facilities, shelters and rescues each year. Both organizations strive to improve the lives of people and “rescued” pets in the community through multiple established programs.
I have had the pleasure to volunteer in the past with Pay It Forward For Pets and it is an amazing organization with a passionate staff and a concept that makes a difference and works. Case in point, recently, a friend told me about a lovely dog who had to find a new home because his owner was elderly and had to give him up. I knew right away who to contact, Pay It Forward For Pets and they went into action. Within a few weeks, they with their amazing network had found Marley a home and he is safe and sound now with a new family who even takes him to visit his former owner. They are a wonderful organization that we are fortunate to have. They help many pets and people!
Exceptional! Pay It Forward For Pets has done a fantastic job highlighting animals in need. The portraits really bring out the best in each animal. I have nothing but praise.
Pay It Forward For Pets is truly a great organization looking out for the best possible guidance, solution and homes for pets. They look out for the best interest of the animal in each case. I have rescued myself and this time was in need of assistance for a family member. I reached out to Pay It Forward For Pets and they were quick to respond. Thankfully with their knowledge and sources for networking, they were able to help out with finding a perfect home for this lucky pup.
I can't say enough good things about this organization. I was led to SCAC from the photos posted on this page. I didn't get the dog I had gone to see, but found a beautiful sweet soul that I brought home. Although it didn't end up working out, Georjette went out of her way to find a solution for me. God bless her!! She helped make the best out of a not great situation for everyone involved. I could never express enough gratitude.
The pic Pay It Forward For Pets took of "Buddy" is the sole reason we ended up with him. I saw Buddy's pic & knew that was it. The pic drew me in, and his story closed the deal. I told Georgette this and she said that was the purpose of what they did. Her pics capture a glimpse into their souls. Buddy is probably the best dog we've ever had, and we would have never hooked up had it not been for Georgette's organization's effort. I will forever be a fan and supporter of Pay It Forward For Pets and I invite all animal lovers to join me !!!
Pay it Forward for Pets is a remarkable agency in their every day operations. And for me personally... providing a surgery for my puppy that isn't financially possible for me is appreciated more than words can express. I will always support this agency and their mission. My family, our Jasmine and I will be forever grateful!
The people of this organization truly care about the welfare of pets. PIFFP has proven itself to be a valuable organization that saves lives in a nontraditional way! Donor dollars go directly to helping pets- there are no salaries being paid and there is no costly overhead of a building when working collaboratively with local shelters and rescues.
