Pets for Patriots

Pets for Patriots, Inc., is a nationally operating 501(c)(3) charity that creates life-saving opportunities for veterans to adopt homeless dogs and cats. Pets for Patriots is one of the only organizations in the country dedicated to United States military veterans from WWII up to and including those currently in service, while saving the most overlooked homeless animals. The charity is a proud member of the Army AW2 Wounded Warrior Program national community support network, a national partner of the Real Warriors Campaign and is listed by the National Resource Directory for ill and wounded veterans.

Joining Pets for Patriots is entirely free to veterans, though they are responsible for their pet’s adoption fee. To reduce the chance that these pets are surrendered, the charity sends a $150 gift card upon proof of eligible adoption to help with food and other essentials, and Lashley Animal Hospital provides an ongoing 10% service discount to encourage responsible pet veterinary care. 

Individuals must first apply through Pets for Patriots and provide relevant eligibility documents. Approval typically takes no more than two business days, after which they can visit a local Pets for Patriots adoption partner to find their new best friend.
