Giving – and receiving – the gift of unconditional love
We believe in the transformative power of the everyday dog or cat – “ordinary” companion pets whose only job in life is to love without limits.
To support the lifetime commitment veterans make when they adopt a pet through Pets for Patriots, we provide a range of benefits to help ensure that caring for Fluffy or Fido doesn’t take too big a bite out of their budgets.

Pets for Patriots helps military veterans find, adopt and afford lifetime care for their honorably adopted pets
Our shelter partners provide at least one additional benefit to you upon adoption, such as pet training, ‘day one’ essentials or adoption fee discounts.
Discounted pet care
Every one of our veterinary partners offers a minimum ongoing 10% fee discount for the care of pets adopted through our program.
We curate exclusive discounts from high-quality pet e-tailers to help veterans in our program save money on pet health insurance, treats, pet food, medication and supplies from trusted brands.
Pet Food Bank program
We provide a one-time $150 contribution via e-gift card to a major pet retailer upon eligible pet adoption, to be used for food, medications, supplies and other essentials. Other arrangements available for veterans without access to the internet.
Have questions about pet adoption, our program, or just need a ‘helping paw’ at the shelter? Our team is available to make your pet adoption process as smooth as possible.
Post-adoption follow up
We’ve got your six! While our official follow up occurs over a six-month period, we’re always here if you have questions, need information or other pet-related assistance.
