I had been struggling for a while. I went into a program to help veterans get housing and get back on my feet. This program is transitional housing through the Salvation Army in Charlotte, NC. I got approved for a section 8 voucher just for veterans. The transitional housing does not allow pets however. I needed a safe place for my 4yr. Old German Shepherd, Nana, while I focused on what I needed to do to get back on my feet. Guardian Angel for soldiers pets is that place, I can trust these ppl with my best friend and confidently do what I need to do knowing she is safe.

My neighbor and good friend was being deployed to Afghanistan and needed someone to care for his two big dogs. Unfortunately I am was unable to help him out. He searched online and found Guardian Angels for Soldier's Pet. He was matched up with a foster home nearby. He was able to take his dogs to the foster home so that he could meet the people, see their house and yard and have his dogs meet them and their dogs.
Not only did this couple foster his dogs but they sent him pictures and updates though out his deployment and when he returned they have remained friends. He was more grateful than I can express here. I was so impressed by Guardian Angels and their ability to help my friend.

I volunteer for Guardian Angels for Soldier's Pet as a Foster Home Coordinator for the state of Ohio and for a while I was doing the State of New Jersey. While trying to place two dogs into foster care in New Jersey I was having trouble finding a home that was appropriate for these two dogs. Being new to the organization I was worried that I would fail to find a home for these dogs because it was a last minute request in the middle of the summer I couldn't find anybody willing to take the dogs due to planned vacations or the few willing to take the dogs had cats in the home and we weren't sure if that would work with these two dogs. When I asked for help several people from other states came forward and offered their assistance. With the help of other group members we found a wonderful home to foster these two dogs. This organization definitely is a tight knit group that works together as a whole to make sure they don't let any military member down.
I was just named the National Media Relations Coordinator a couple of weeks ago and my first few projects have been to interview volunteers and those military members or veterans that they helped. The stories have been so moving. A homeless veteran living in a tent didn't want to get help because he couldn't take his dog with him into transitional housing. Because Guardian Angels found a foster home for his dog he was able to move indoors, get a job, get the help he needed and finally move into his own place where he was reunited with his wonderful dog! He was so grateful and it was so heartwarming talking to him about his experience.
I've also talked to several military people who were deployed and needed foster homes for their pets while they were on duty. They talked about the peace of mind they were given knowing their pet was in a good home while they were away and that allowed them to concentrate on doing their job while overseas.
I'm so proud to be a part of this organization and to know that the many volunteers from all levels and all positions work from their hearts to help support military members and their pets

I have been a foster home volunteer for over 5 years and have fostered 5 cats (one of whom had two stays with us). GASP is a top-notch organization that does tremendously valuable work by giving servicepeople peace of mind, their furry friends a safe home, and foster home volunteers the privilege of supporting our servicepeople.

Guardian Angels for Soldier's Pet is a caring organization comprised of some of the most dedicated individuals I have had the pleasure of knowing. I have worked as a Foster Coordination Liaison for more than two years, so I know first hand how much these wonderful individuals care for our military members - both present and former - and how hard they work to take care of the furbabies so deployments and life situations can be easier.
