Mission Statement

Pets for Vets is dedicated to providing a second chance for shelter pets by resucing, training and pairing them with America's veterans who could benefit from having an emotional support companion animal.

Description

Pets for Vets selects shelter animals for each veteran to match his or her personality. Professional animal trainers rehabilitate the shelter dogs using positive reinforcement and teach the dogs good manners to fit into the veteran's lifestyle. Training can include desensitization to wheel chairs or crutches and recognizing and reacting to panic or anxiety disorder behaviors. Each pet will be spayed or neutered, healthy, up to date on vaccinations and micro-chipped. Each veteran-pet mach is provided with all of the necessary equipment to start their new life together. This program is provided at no cost to the veteran.
