Pets for Vets

Honoring those who fight for our country and now for animals
Veterans Day is an opportunity to say thank you to those who fight for our country.
We want to thank Veterans who fight for our country and who are now fighting for the animals. Thank you for your service.
Here are some of the benefits of vets owning a pet
  • Having a pet as part of your family has shown time and time again to reduce stress
  • Lower blood pressure 
  • Companionship
  • Unconditional love
Help us match up local vets with amazing pets. 

Take a look at one of our long-time volunteers and proud Veteran Gene who gave his sweet girl Hope now Cupcake a loving home. Going on 6 years together! Gene adopted Cupcake during our #PetsforVets adoption event in 2015.


In honor of Veterans Day, we will have free pet adoptions for all active, retired, and former military personnel on November 11th. Thank you for your service!
