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 had never heard of DoD until last fall when I moved across country with a military PCS. As I was settling into my new home (and hotel) I needed a place for my dog Truman to be near me as I was closing on a house. The family that fostered my dog was amazing and very supportive. The whole experience gave me huge piece of mind and I'm forever grateful for DoD for the support for military members with this program. The foster family and I are still friends and continue to grow as doggie boarding pals.
