Dogs On Deployment Places Pets Of Soldiers In Foster Homes
When a soldier is deployed on duty, what happens to their pets? What if they don't have a family to care for them while they are gone? That's where Dogs on Deployment comes in. They are a national 501(c)(3) non-profit providing a central network for military members 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 military commitment. DoD exists to help military members keep their pets by alleviating the need for pet relinquishment from military members due to the hardships of deployments. Additionally, Dogs on Deployment promotes responsible, life-long pet ownership in the military community. These service men and women are doing something selfless for their country... the least we can do is care for their pets!
