#ShelterSunday Project — Pets Come First


One part of the Pets I’ve Met mission is to help connect local animal shelters with potential donors, fosters, and volunteers. To do this, we have decided to start a program called #ShelterSunday. On select Sundays, our team will be heading out to a local animal shelter to speak with volunteers and take pictures to promote their cause.


This week’s featured shelter is Pets Come First in Centre Hall, PA. From their website:

On January 1, 2012 PCF signed a lease to take over the Centre Hall SPCA facility, and in April 2014 the property and facility were formally turned over to Pets Come First! This is an organization that is much needed in our community to care for local homeless, abused and stray animals.  This is a great opportunity to educate the community on the importance of spaying and neutering animals and to ensure that every adoptable pet is given a fair chance to find a new home.

The Pets I’ve Met team has worked with Pets Come First in the past as we helped out with a fundraiser held at Home D Pizzeria last August. Here is a picture of Penny at that event.


Ways to help Pets Come First:

The best way to help out is to give a direct donation. Pets Come First is a 501(c)(3) organization, and your donation is tax deductible. donatebutton

If you are from the Centre Hall, PA area, you can always sign up to volunteer or become a foster.

You can also attend some of their fundraisers! They have two coming up that Pets I’ve Met will be attending. The first is a Bingo Night on March 25th and second is a 5K Dog Jog on April 28th.

We hope you can help out in any way that you can. The more help Pets Come First receives from the community, the more they can care for pups like Mazy. We met Mazy today and she is such a beautiful girl!
