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.
My family kept two cats for a soldier and it was a wonderful experience. We enjoyed helping out someone serving our country. "Mom" checked in on the kids a few times from Afghanistan and every time we could tell how truly grateful she was and that she was excited to see her fur kids when she got home. We are hooked and already looking for our next pet that needs us! In addition to helping a service member, DOD is a great way to have a pet for a few months without the long term commitment.
