Hardship program

Keeping veterans and pets together during times of crisis

Our adoption program is at the heart of everything we do. But keeping people and pets together during difficult times is vital as well.
Our hardship program helps veterans in crisis provide for their adopted pets.
Veterans in our hardship program are often elderly or with limited discretionary income. They are most vulnerable when a temporary financial or personal crisis arises.
Pet food and othere essentials are not a luxury. Our hardship program help veterans buy pet food and other items they need to care for their adopted pets.
This support prevents pets from surrender back to the shelter. It takes economic euthanasia – killing a pet one can no longer afford – off the table altogether.
A donation of $500 supports a veteran and pet in crisis over the course of four to six months.
