The Pets for Vets program is dedicated to providing a second chance for shelter pets by rescuing, training and pairing them with America’s veterans who could benefit from having a companion animal.
This is a win-win way to give back to our troops who have given so much to us. They fought hard for our country and made us proud. Pets for Vets is a concrete way to say thank you and to benefit our returning veterans.
Many of our Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom veterans suffer from physical and emotional injuries making it difficult to transition back to civilian life. Pets for Vets can help! Our goal is to heal their wounds by bringing together man’s best friend and our returning soldiers while showing them both that we have not forgotten.
Any veteran with a condition that could benefit from having a companion animal and who is also able to care for an animal is eligible to receive a Pets for Vets companion animal.
Soldiers have formed a bond with those they shared “war” with. Yet, sometimes those four-legged warriors don’t get a chance to make it to the “home of the free”. Pets for Vets – seeks to match vets and pups that need a home.
Some how THIS need can be the answer to THIS need….
Next week (June 6th) begins National Pet Appreciation Week- what could you do to help?
