About Us

Papa’s Pet Project is a non-profit, all volunteer animal rescue organization that was founded in 2009 for the purpose of helping to improve the lives of homeless animals in our community.

We work closely with the Plymouth Animal Shelter and run the adoption center at Petsmart at the Grove in Plymouth to help homeless cats find wonderful, loving homes. Papa’s Pet Project has over 30 volunteers who take care of our cats and kittens on a regular basis and another 15 who donate their time at our fundraisers and special events. We are active in the pursuit to find homes for the cats and dogs at the animal shelter; helping to find lost dogs in Plymouth; and rescuing and fostering homeless kittens.
