Pets for Patriots via Crowdrise
July 01, 2015
Pets for Patriots saves lives of person and pet by helping United States military veterans adopt shelter dogs and cats most at risk of death or permanent homelessness.
We are the only nationally operating 501(c)(3) organization that is open to veterans and military personnel from all armed forces and any era of service, that is focused on the most overlooked shelter pets (adult and special needs animals, and large breed dogs) and committed to making the healing power of companion pets affordable for our nation's military veterans.
We have served more than 750 veterans returning from war with PTSD, TBI and other psychological trauma, deploying military personnel who want to fill the void of their absence for their families back home, and veterans who are coping with loneliness and depression.
Every $250 fully funds one veteran-pet adoption, including pre-adoption counseling, a direct contribution equivalent to up to one year of pet food, and extensive post-adoption follow up for a minimum of 6 months.
