Top 5 Reasons to Adopt from Pet Shelters

Veteran Pet Shelter Adoption

Vets Adopt Pets - Is a lively upbeat program that  "Thanks Veterans for their service to us all" with a furry little friend from the pet shelter.  The on going love & devotion a pet gives to each Veteran is the best way ever to Thank the Men & Women who fought for our freedom. 

We are a community of contributors, shelters & rescues that join together to pay the adoption fee as our way of saying Thank You to Veterans, Active Duty & their Families.

Our role is to pull together the many organizations, information and resources that exist to enable Military Active Duty & Veterans to enjoy a Companion Dog or Cat from a pet shelter, to obtain service dog information-referrals, to honor our Military Working Dogs, Contract Working Dogs and their handlers
