Program overview


Pets for Patriots is one of the only organizations committed to both veterans and homeless, last-chance pets, we have the power to bring positive change to lives every day.

Our member Patriots come from all branches of the U.S. military and are in various stages of their military lives, from active duty to retired. Some are previous pet owners, while others are poised to discover the enjoyment of pet ownership for the very first time. Some want a companion pet to ease the stress of military transition or other emotional challenges, and others simply want a new best friend and loyal companion.

Save a life

Your service to our country already makes you a hero. At Pets for Patriots, we give you another chance to be heroic by saving the life of a dog or cat in need that still has many years of love and life to give.

Unfortunately, the last-chance pets we’re devoted to save face near certain death in a shelter and that certainty only grows with the age of the pet. Many people are simply uninformed about the wonderful and unique benefits of adult pets, as well as the joys of other pets that are most often overlooked. Read the wonderful stories of member patriots who gave a second chance at life to these amazing dogs and cats.

Find your new best friend

Serving in the military is all about loyalty: to our country and its values, to your unit, to your brothers and sisters in arms. In that same spirit, we provide our member Patriots with long-term support for a four-legged friend. A friend who’s dedicated to your happiness from the moment you give it a second chance at life. We think that’s a pretty special friend.
