Give Back This Memorial Day
As we reflect this Memorial Day on all the brave men, women, and animals who have served our country, we’d like to offer you a way to show your appreciation through giving where it matters. Here are a handful of our veteran partners that are doing amazing work to rescue dogs from war zones, pair veterans with companion animals, and so much more.
1) Help Deployed Soldiers Save Animals – Click here to donate
Puppy Rescue Mission’s (PRM) mission is to fundraise and assist in animal rescue, foster and re-homing when needed, in particular animals bonded with soldiers, especially those deployed in war zones. PRM assist with requests, logistics, administration and fundraising for the adopted stray dogs of war rescued by and bonded with soldiers. This may include vet care, supplies, transport and related issues. PRM works with or through other organizations that help our soldiers bring their companion animals home from war.
2) Perfectly Paired: Shelter Dogs for Veterans – Click here to donate
Pets for Vets provides a second chance for both our returning veterans and needy shelter dogs. These animals can make excellent companions, but might not have that chance, and our brave soldiers receive a second chance at health and happiness. The bonds of friendship formed between man and animal have the power to ease the suffering of our troops when they return from overseas.
3) Care For Our Nation’s Retired Military and Police Dogs – Click here to donate
GreaterGood.org is working with dedicated organizations that specialize in the rescue of these retired heroes. We are working to bring as many Military Working Dogs, Contract Working Dogs, and Police K9’s home in order to either reunite them with the handlers with whom they worked or adopt them into loving homes. Grants awarded to partners help to make these rescues possible by paying for veterinary care, boarding, transportation costs and training.
