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.PetsforVets.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.)

At this time we are in need of volunteers in Michigan.
