Pets for Vets

(C) Pets for Vets, Used by Permission
Dogs and cats support humans, are companions to humans, are incredible help to humans in many ways.  I'd like to paw about this organization I found!  WOOF!!!

Pets for Vets is pawleased to announce the formation of a new chapter in the Washington DC Metro area.  Pets for Vets is a 501 (c) (3) non profit organization operating in 22 states bringing together man’s best friend and our returning soldiers.

The mission is; “To help heal the emotional wounds of military veterans by using the power of the human-animal bond to provide a second chance for shelter animals by rescuing, training and pairing them with America’s servicemen and women who could benefit from having a companion animal.”

Our professional trainers will select a shelter pet based upon interviews with each veteran to determine their individual needs and personal lifestyle.   All animals are examined by a veterinarian, vaccinated, neutered and micro-chipped.  The animal is adopted from the shelter and placed with a Pets for Vets foster for weeks of rehabilitation and training.  We provide a welcome package with all the necessary supplies and equipment to start their new life together at no cost to the veteran.  Pets for Vets provides on-going support while the veteran adapts to the new life with their animal.

For more information or to donate or volunteer please go to Pets for Vets.
