Get ready for March madness at Pets for Patriots
And we’re not talking basketball.
This month and through April we have new ways to support our life-saving work, including one that earns us donations at no cost to you. We’re excited to introduce major campaigns with Take Your Dog To Work Day®, FLOAT, and GORUCK.
Stay tuned later this month for more exciting partner announcements that will broaden our reach, get more people involved in our mission, and help sustain our vital work pairing veterans and shelter pets.
Calling all pets! Show us your best pet photo
Take Your Dog To Work Day® and Pets for Patriots have teamed up to help the most overlooked shelter pets – and you can help. Upload your favorite photo of your pet(s) between March 15-April 15 and Take Your Dog To Work Day creator Pet Sitters International will donate $1 to Pets for Patriots.
Learn more and upload your favorite pet photos here.
Any and all pets are eligible for this promotion: dogs, cats, gerbils, hamsters, rabbits – if it’s your pet, snap a picture and earn us a buck!
Be A Pet’s Hero
For one week only get one of our most popular shirt slogans in an all-new design.
We partnered with FLOAT (For the Love Of All Things) to create this one-of-a-kind collectible Be A Pet’s Hero t-shirt. For every shirt sold FLOAT will donate $8 to fund our work pairing veterans and shelter pets. Choose from unisex short- and long-sleeve shirts, and women’s tees in v-neck, classic crew and racerback designs.
Our goal is $1,000, but we are hoping to raise much more. The sky is the limit!
Our Be A Pet’s Hero shirt is available in a wide range of colors and styles, but is only available through Monday, March 20 at 10:59 am ET. Get your shirts here.
Ruck your dog…or your cat
Get Fido – or Fluffy – and get ready to hit the trail with our friends at GORUCK in their first virtual fundraiser of 2017. All proceeds will benefit Pets for Patriots and fund our life-saving work pairing military veterans with sheltered animals in need.
Pledge the amount of miles you want to ruck with your pet by pre-ordering campaign patches in March. Pledge as little as one mile and as many as 100. Limited edition t-shirts are available too, and are a great way to celebrate your ruck. Choose your patch and t-shirt here.
Throughout the month of April you will be on the honor system to complete your miles pledged. If you use social media, upload photos of rucks with your pet. Remember to use the hashtag #RuckYourDog or #RuckYourCat so that we can follow everyone who is rucking for us. All patches and t-shirts will be shipped at the end of April.

Uplift a veteran in need
John is a veteran in our program who just had his foot amputated. His spirits are low and he’ll be in a rehabilitation hospital for some time, delaying his dreams of adopting a companion pet through our program.
To lift his spirits, we plan to send him boxes of get well cards from people all over the country. His wife tells us it would be just the kind of joyous surprise he needs right now to get him through this difficult time in his life.
Please send your card to our headquarters:
John c/o Pets for Patriots
218 E Park Ave, Suite 543
Long Beach, NY 11561
Our first outbound shipment will be on Friday March 17, and every Friday thereafter we will ship out whatever additional cards we have received. Thank you!
