This year, we are competing against the North Shore Animal League and Adopt-a-Pet.com. The North Shore Animal League is the largest no-kill rescue and adoption organization in the world; and, Adopt-a-Pet.com is a searchable database that reaches across the U.S. and Canada, connecting homeless pets with potential fur-ever homes.
North Shore Animal League and Adopt-a-Pet.com are stiff competition; they are amazing organizations that do great work for animals and their families. We are honored to be participating in this competition with them.
Dogs on Deployment (DoD) has been working with the military community since 2011 when founders Alisa and Shawn Johnson recognized the unique needs of military pet owners, when faced with deployments and PCS. Since it’s foundation, DoD has successfully placed nearly 500 pets with foster families. Additionally, DoD has worked to educate the military community on issues relating to pet care, and diligently worked to raise money for pet-related emergencies for military members.
