Our mission is to give military member’s peace of mind concerning their pets when it’s time to deploy by providing them with the ability to find people willing to help them. Dogs on Deployment is a national 501(c)(3) non-profit providing a central database for military members to find families and individuals who are willing to board their pets while they are deployed. No pet should ever be surrendered 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.
Dogs on Deployment has assisted over 700 military pet owners through boarding and financial assistance since founding in June 2011. DoD has awarded over $60,000 to needing military and veteran families for help with their pet's care during time of emergency or duress.

Fantastic, smooth volunteer experience! This is a nonprofit that is well run and just frankly needs more exposure in the community as it is well received by those both wanting to help and those helped.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
help them find more funding for marketing.
