What is an eligible pet adoption?
Our goal is to give the most overlooked, undervalued dogs and cats a second chance at life through adoption.
The hard truth is that a majority of these types of companion pets will be killed or, if in a “no kill” facility, can languish for months – or years – without a home or family to call their own.
Pets elgible for adoption in our program must meet only one of the following criteria:
Dog or cat, at least 2 years of age
Dog or cat with special needs*
Dog or cat homeless 6 months+
Dog 40+ pounds at adoption
Veterans must apply to and be approved by Pets for Patriots prior to pet adoption, and adopt a pet meeting one of the above criteria and adopt from any of our shelter/rescue partners.
Exceptions on prior approval for weekend/federal holiday adoptions.
*Special needs: birth defect, disability, or chronic medical condition, any of which must require lifelong care. Not sure if a pet qualifies?
Ask us before you adopt!
