P.E.T. FLORIDA JAX

This is a P.E.T. ---   Personal Energy Transportation vehicle for persons in third-world countries who do not have the availability of their legs for transportation.  We make the child-size PETS in the Jacksonville, FL workshop. The one seen in the pictures on this site today is nicknamed The Hudge, made in honor of Robert Hudgins who was instrumental in getting a number of additional men to participate.  It is the 300th child-size PET produced out of this shop in our 10 year history.   In 2013 we built 80 PETS in this shop alone.  We built 90 in 2014.   We dedicated #400 to Parker Jones in June, 2015.  There are more pictures in the picture gallery.  There is a video over to your right on this page.   Check out the GET INVOLVED page - there's a map there to find us.     See www.petinternational.org for the whole story.  Adult size PETS are made in the Penney Retirement Community's shop, at Penney Farms, near Green Cove Springs, just south of Jacksonville.  The story of Penney Farms is in a video to be placed on that page.

And, believe it or not, our CEO does work among us, as seen in the pictures to your right and below.

This is a little 3 year old Thai boy who suffers from muscular dystrophy and has no control over both lower limbs which he simply drags around.  He is a very bright and active child so we thought to provide him with a PET children's cart and you can see what happened.  He took to it like a pro and was instantly on his way exploring the world around him.  I think you can tell from the photos which were taken by the photographer at the Trat Thailand City Hospital.  The boy now has the perfect aid for his disability.  Trat is located on the western shore of the Gulf of Thailand near the Cambodian border.  Please than everyone at PET for helping this child.  Hooray for PET!
