Pets for Vets
Pets for Vets is a non-profit organization matching veterans with animals in need.
According to their website:
The Pets for Vets program is dedicated to providing a second chance for shelter pets by rescuing, training and pairing them with America's veterans who want a companion animal.
This is a win-win way to give back to our troops who have given so much to us. They fought hard for our country and made us proud. Pets for Vets is a concrete way to say thank you and to benefit our returning veterans.
Many of our Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Afghani Freedom veterans suffer from physical and emotional injuries making it difficult to transition back to civilian life. Pets for Vets can help! Our goal is to heal their wounds by bringing together man's best friend and our returning soldiers while showing them both that we have not forgotten.
