TDY MISSION: Give a Dog a Bone!
http://caviontdy.org first mission is to bring awareness to the financial and emotional burdens faced by our deployed military members as it pertains to their dogs.
Based on their success in implementing programs that provide our deployed military members and their pets with peace of mind, love, and care, Cavi on TDY has selected Dogs on Deployment http://dogsondeployment.org as the beneficiary of our inaugural mission!
DID YOU KNOW:
- When our nations finest deploy, they often have to leave their pets behind
- The average deployment is 9-12 months
- The cost to a military member to provide for food and boarding can easily exceed $3000 per deployment
- Limited options, coupled with great financial burden, often force our military members to turn their dogs over to a shelter knowing they are unlikely to ever be reunited
- When changing duty stations, especially overseas, military members bear the entire cost of transporting their pets; sometimes costing in excess of $5000
