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 kept two labs for a deploying Army type for nearly 6 months. In addition to the dogs we already had, it was a good experience for my foreign exchange son to see that Americans do stick together and help each other out. Jason was relieved because he was running out of options really fast and we were ably to get the dogs moved and settled before he had to go. He got to be on TV when he returned showing some great reunion footage that we had several people ask about DoD. Was fun and I'd do it again without hesitation.
