About

Pets for Vets is a rapidly growing national nonprofit that pairs shelter dogs with returning veterans to save lives and to increase the quality of life for those who have served our country. There are a lot of soldiers looking for companionship to battle PTSD, agoraphobia, etc. and a canine companion can do wonders, as you know! (See soldier video testimonials on our website www.Pets-for-Vets.com)

A veteran is chosen to receive a dog; an appropriate dog is chosen, adopted, trained and placed with the veteran forever. We are more interested in the quality of the placement than quantity of placements. We are looking for R trainers who are interested in giving back. Each chapter has its own chairs/directors and trainer(s). (Trainers do not have to be burdened with admin work. We know you’d rather be out there training.)
