Where We Started

The Jax Project was founded as an in-house program for the Lansing Area AIDS Network in February 2022 to address the need for support of pet owners living with HIV in Mid-Michigan. Through this experience, the need for similar support that is experienced by anyone living with a chronic illness became evident. In order to greater serve the population of Mid-Michigan, the Jax Project grew from that internal program in response.

The Jax Project remains sponsored by and affiliated with the Lansing Area AIDS Network.

Our Beliefs

The reason we do what we do

We believe that all people and animals deserve to be treated with understanding and empathy regardless of health, financial, or social standings. Pets are members of our families and their presence greatly improves the lives of those who chose to keep them. No person should have to chose between meeting their own health care needs and providing for their pet.
