Shelter Partner: Process & requirements

Giving hope and a home to the most overlooked animals in your care

Pets for Patriots offers an additional channel to help you place the most adoption-challenged dogs and cats in your care into loving military homes, where their unconditional love is the best ‘thank you for your service’ gift of all.


Pets for Patriots offers shelters, rescues, SPCAs, humane societies and municipal animal controls a free, easy to administer and demonstrably successful program to pair military veterans with companion pets

More affordable pet adoption means more adopted pets

We reduce animal surrender by addressing one of the greatest challenges to pet guardianship – cost of care – and provide extensive post-adoption follow up to maximize the pet-person bond and minimize pet ‘recycling.’

Support our troops

Be recognized as an organization that cares about veterans and military families who live in your community. We can’t think of a better way to say ‘thank you for your service’ than by giving the unconditional love of a rescued dog or cat.
