Program Overview and Benefits

Become a Pets for Patriots adoption partner

Our nationwide network of shelters, SPCAs, humane societies, rescues and municipal animal controls is the foundation of our program, helping Pets for Patriots veterans select and adopt program-eligible pets who suit their needs and lifestyle.

Joining is completely free. 

Benefits of partnership
  • Increased adoption of adult and other hard-to-place dogs and cats
  • Reduction in pet ‘recycling;’ we connect adopters with reduced cost veterinary care to ease one of the biggest costs of pet parenthood
  • Community recognition for supporting a cause that assists veterans
  • Promotion of your shelter as one of our community partners, including a profile of your shelter on our site

Full adoption authority remains with you, including your customary evaluation of the potential adopter to ensure that the animal is placed in an appropriate home.
