Wanted in the Minneapolis, Minnesota area to help raise and train dogs for fellow disabled veterans. This May include fostering an already trained dog just waiting for placement with a veteran or fostering an adult dog and training once a week with that dog.
If you are interested in volunteering as a foster for a few months up to a year for Pets Loyal 2 Vets, we would like to hear from you.
You must understand the responsibilities of being a foster trainer and the time it will take to help train or foster these dogs for veterans. We are looking to develop a regular base of foster homes we can trust and help foster a variety of dogs for fellow veterans with traumatic brain injuries and PTSD. We currently have one dog already trained and looking for a foster home. Will that foster be you?
You must be able to provide a safe, calm, clean stable home environment with no other dogs present, fenced yard preferred, non-abusive family members and be able to foster or attend weekly training classes and follow a 15 minute daily training regiment to ready the dog for more formal training. All dogs fostered will have all their shots and paperwork and will be micro chipped and spayed or neutered an d thouroughly vetted.
Forming a partnership with Pets Loyal 2 Vets will help ensure the life of a Minnesota veteran is not forgotten or taken for granted or used by for profit kennel operators to promote their for profit enterprises and also helps save the life of a homeless dog.
Pets Loyal 2 Vets was created by, and built by veterans for veterans, has no paid staff and all donations go directly to benefit disabled veterans enrolled in our programs. Our overhead is less than 1%. All of our services and dogs are completely free of charge to our veterans. If you are a veteran who has applied for a dog and wants to raise or train along side with your new companion, that is even better. No greater love comes from that of a fellow veteran supporting another veteran by helping to raise and train a dog for fellow vets.
Foster trainers must be at at least of adult age, have a stable home environment, be able to train once a week in class with other fosters and veterans and 15 minutes a day at home. Experience preferred and no more than one dog alreday in the houme. Home inspections are required as well.
Help another veteran by applying as a foster or foster dog trainer for our wounded brothers and sisters and know that your paying it forward will help save two lives at once. To apply. go to http://petsloyal2vets.org/foster-application/
Although we seek veterans, if you are not a veteran and want to help foster train a dog for a veteran, please consider this opportunity. It will bring many months of joy to your family knowing your efforts are helping support our Minnesota troops.
