Adoption program

Giving veterans emotional support 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 brings the healing love of a companion pet to veterans who need it. It saves the lives of the most vulnerable dogs and cats who deserve a second chance at life. And it helps animal shelters place their most overlooked pets and make 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.
