This is wonderful. Please share...
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. Dogs on Deployment helps military members keep their pets by avoiding having to give them away. 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!
