Silicon Valley Pet Project (SVPP) is a nonprofit organization committed to saving local at-risk shelter pets through rescue, community involvement, and education. SVPP partners with the San Jose Animal Care Center, TriCity Animal Shelter, and County of Santa Clara Animal Services from which they rescue dogs and cats of all ages and breeds. Their focus is on the most vulnerable pets at the shelter, particularly seniors and animals with special needs.

Funded in 2021 and 2022
How we help: 

Over the past year, Silicon Valley Pet Project (SVPP) has seen an increase in the number of senior pets needing rescue at local shelters. These senior dogs are often surrendered to the shelter because their people cannot afford their medical care. The Grey Muzzle grant will help SVPP pay for the medical services these senior dogs deserve and require. The grant will help dogs like Gigi, a senior poodle-mix who was rescued from the San Jose Animal Care Center. Gigi  came into the shelter as a stray with some heart issues, severe dental disease, and impaired vision. After receiving needed medical care, she is currently in a loving foster home getting the TLC she deserves.
