At Pets for Patriots, we’re offering new ways to connect veterans with last-chance pets as part of a major relaunch in celebration of our two-year anniversary.
Since receiving our not-for-profit status, Pets for Patriots has transformed more than 100 lives of pet and person through our honorable adoption program. Veterans who have benefited from our charity range from a young Air Force couple who saved a three-legged Great Dane to a 90 year-old WWII veteran whose adoption of a little dog named Gizmo was a one-in-a-million event.

Since its launch, Pets for Patriots has started its program in 30 states and we aim to be in every state by 2013.
To help achieve this goal, Pets for Patriots is working with Austin-based AscendWorks for database customization, marketing automation and website design. Moved by our mission, AscendWorks donated most of its time and continues to work with us to create the infrastructure, processes and tools to support our continued growth, as well as to give people who come to our site an amazing experience.
“Pets for Patriots serves our country’s heroes and helps them with their emotional and practical needs,” says Don Dalrymple, AscendWorks president. “They save pets and soldiers. We are glad to help make a difference and facilitate a beautiful process of helping our nation’s heroes. It is inspiring and we are glad to be part of helping the cause.”

- Step-by-step learning and qualifying tours for patriots, shelters and veterinarians
- Google map locator to find Pets for Patriots adoption and veterinary partners
