Companion Pet Adoption for our U.S. Military; Veterans, Active Duty & their Families


 Dear Veterans, Military Families & Active Duty,

A dog or cat gives a special kind of love for healing, health and happiness. In moving on from war, it is our turn, as a community to honor and respect your selfless act with support to move on from war.  To show our appreciation of your service to our country, U.S. Vets Adopt Pets would like to pay the adoption fee at your local animal shelter 

People and animals have a long history of living together and bonding. Perhaps the oldest evidence of this special relationship was discovered a few years ago in Israel—a 12,000-year-old human skeleton buried with its hand resting on the skeleton of a 6-month-old wolf pup. “The bond between animals and humans is part of our evolution, and it’s very powerful,” says Dr. Ann Berger, a physician and researcher at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

1.  A Military Person should NOT have to pay for a service dog, the dogs training or any other cost, such as an application fee.

2.  A service dog must be trained to perform a physical task for you.  Begin to think about how your medical issues show on a physical level... Call if you want or need to discuss... 

3.  The Service Dog TRAINER must be accredited with ADI- Assistance Dog International to allow the dog on VA or Military grounds.  Double check this at your VA Center or Military Base.
