Veterinary Partner: Process & requirements

Serve veterans and save pets in your own community

Pets for Patriots is a turnkey program to help veterans adopt the most overlooked dogs and cats from shelters in your community. Your modest discount to veterans in our program is a great way to thank them for their service by offering quality, affordable care for their pets.

Our program is open to veterinary hospitals, clinics, mobile practices, and shelter-affiliated facilities. We offer a free, demonstrably successful program that is easy to administer and that your staff and clients will love.
