Military members nation-wide confront a multitude of problems during their careers, the last thing they need to worry about is their pet's care during their service commitments. Dogs On Deployment is a 501(c)(3) national non-profit which provides an online network for service members to search for volunteers who are willing to board their pets during their owner's service commitments. Dogs on Deployment promotes responsible, life-long pet ownership by military pet owners by advocating for military pet owner rights, providing educational resources and granting financial assistance for military pet owners during times of emergency. Join Dogs on Deployment's mission in changing the lives of our military members and their pets.
I am so grateful for DoD and this testimonial is way over due. Last summer my husband was involuntarily separated from the Navy. We had a very short window of time to pack up and begin driving across the country. We had a 3 year old, and I was expecting our second baby and to add to that stress, no where to go with our pets. Family had offered to let us stay with them until we were back on our feet but due to allergies, we were unable to bring the cats with us. We were 3 days from our destination when I got a message that would change everything. Someone from DoD was willing to board out cats. I am so thankful for Renee and her family. They went above and beyond to care for our pets as if they were her own. She was so understanding of our situation and worked with us every step of the way. My husband started his new job 6 months ago and we closed on our first home in March. I am looking forward to the day we are able to help some else the way Renee and her family helped us in our time of need.
