Adoption program

Giving veterans the emotional support they need while saving shelter animals no one wants

Every day 20 veterans take their own lives. Each year the number of shelter animals killed would fill all Major League Baseball stadiums combined.
Our adoption program is at the heart of everything we do. It answers the needs of veterans for companionship and emotional support. It saves our nation’s most vulnerable dogs and cats. And it helps animal shelters place their most overlooked pets, making room to save others in need.
Companion pets help veterans in countless ways. They give veterans a new sense of purpose, some even a reason to live. Pets reduce the impacts of PTSD, depression, anxiety, and loneliness. Everyday dogs and cats ease the hardships of deployments on military families.
A gift of $350 supports one veteran-pet adoption for one year.
