We are Proud to Partner with the Don't You Want Me Project

The Don't You Want Me Project is a social impact photography project dedicated to showcasing the beauty and resilience of LGBTQ+ people, and the transformative impact their rescue dogs have on them. The unconditional love and bond between pet and pet lover is truly something special, and we're proud to be partnering with the Don't You Want Me Project to share some of these stories.

The Don't You Want Me Project

Co-founded by Jack Jackson, the Don't You Want Me Project provides a visual global platform for LGBTQ+ people and their rescue dogs to tell their stories through personal narratives and compelling images. Finding strength and purpose in the unconditional love, compassion and non-judgemental nature that is embodied in dogs, the Don't You Want Me Project watches and supports the participants heal and transform.

Rescuing a Dog Can Rescue So Much More

Like the Don't You Want Me Project, Pet Valu believes when rescue pets find the right home it's often difficult to tell who has rescued who. Watch individuals from the Don't You Want Me Project share their stories about how their rescue dogs transformed their lives.

The Pet Valu Family is Proud to Support the Don’t You Want Me Project
