I fostered a gray chow for a soldier deployed to Africa this past year. The experience was wonderful! I learned to love chows, instead of fear them. I laughed at his antics while he helped me to fight against my stage 4 cancer symptoms. I had full support of the organization at all times. Although he is now reunited with his soldier, he stays in my heart as an inspiration to help our pets and our soldiers in their time of need. I was rewarded tenfold!
I love volunteering with Guardian Angeles for soldiers pet because the dedication and care they show to the military community and thier beloved pets is unparalleled. Completely operated by volunteers, every cent donated goes directly towards helping our service men and woman care for the pets who care for them. This organization is what ALL 501 c3 nonprofits should be.
This is a wonderfully operated service for care of deployed military personnel pets until they return. It is also working to provide PTSD dogs and provides needed food and health care for pets of homeless veterans. I have been aware of and donated to this 'charity' for years.
The people involved care deeply for the work they do for veterans and their pets.
You could not find a better place to donate if your heart is with our Veterans and their needs.
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.
They do excellent work. Our Vets need and deserve this.
Efficient, committed, and appreciative.
Supporting our soldiers and pets, a great combination.
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
Our pets are more than just pets. Our returning soldiers need unconditional support and love.
Caring organization helping our military members that are deployed. Helping to keep their furry friends out of shelters and ready to welcome their military person home.
