Dogs on Deployment

Have you ever wondered what happens to a dog belonging to a military member when they deploy? Did you know that there is an organization that exists that provides a solution to this problem?

Dogs on Deployment is a national 501(c)(3) non-profit providing a central network for America's Heroes to find volunteers willing to board their pets while they are deployed or have other service commitments, making them unable to temporarily care for their pets. No pet should ever be surrendered to a shelter due to a service commitment. DoD exists to help military, veterans and first-responders keep their pets by alleviating the need for pet relinquishment from due to the hardships of deployments or other service commitments.

Dogs on Deployment's mission is to give America's Heroes peace of mind concerning their pets during their service commitments by providing them with the ability to find people and resources able to help them.

Additionally, Dogs on Deployment promotes responsible, life-long pet ownership in the community by:

  • Advocating for military pet owner rights on military installations
  • Providing educational resources for military members about responsible pet ownership
  • Granting financial assistance to military members for help with their pet's care during emergencies
  • Promoting healthy pet lifestyles, including spay and neuter, insurance options and vaccinations
  • Connecting with community organizations to ensure Dogs on Deployment resources are available to military families

Join our lecture to learn how Dogs on Deployment supports pets of all types that belong to active duty, reservists, National Guard, honorably discharged veterans, first-responders and government service employees and their families.
