Pets for Patriots helps United States military veterans adopt a new pet friend while giving the most overlooked shelter dogs and cats loving homes. Learn more about how our program works. We offer veterans various benefits to promote the human-animal bond, reduce surrender back to shelters, and make lifetime pet guardianship more affordable. These include ‘welcome home’ contributions towards pet food and other basics, as well as access to high-quality, affordable veterinary care and discounts on various pet goods and services. Every day, 20 veterans take their own lives. Every eight seconds, a dog or cat is put to death for lack of anyone to adopt them. Companion pet adoption saves two lives. We are the only nationally operating nonprofit that: Serves veterans at all career stages and from all armed forces, from WWII to active duty. Focuses on the most overlooked, sheltered animals. Addresses surrender prevention by making pet guardianship more affordable for our nation’s veterans. Pets for Patriots, Inc. is a registered 501(c)3 charitable organization dedicated to bringing pets and people together in a lifelong bond of mutual friendship, loyalty, and love.
Our mission is like no other because we are serving the men and women of the most extraordinary military of the most exceptional nation in the world. The ways we think, act and deliver are all in support of fulfilling our mission: to build a nationwide network of shelter/rescue and veterinary partners who share our values and vision. Find loving homes for the most overlooked sheltered animals: adult, special needs, and long-term homeless pets, and large breed dogs and finally, educate the military community and the public about the plight of animals surrendered to shelters, promoting companion pet adoption as the only humane and responsible alternative to buying or breeding animals.
