This organization denied me, as a medically retired veteran who is homeless for 4 weeks because my set up housing fell through. all I needed was help with my animal while I was in transitional housing, where she was not allowed for just 4 weeks. I found countless dod boarding volunteers, which I'm sure would have been a perfect fit while I was waiting for my new home. Now I have to give up my dog who I've had for 3 years because this company denied me, a medically retired veteran from getting a profile in order to talk to the volunteers around me. She will be going to the shelter in a few days now because I can't afford boarding and a deposit on a place. As a veteran, I am very disappointed in dogs on deployment, and will never recommend anyone I know to donate to this cause.
I love what your organization does! I always watch to see if you have a need in my state. I would be happy to care for an extra pup. It's the least I can do!
What a great organization! If I didn't have a temperamental shih tzu, I would gladly take in a pet. The service people serving our country need the peace of mind knowing their pets are well taken care of and safe.
I admire all the volunteers who do this.
After everything our service men and women do to keep our country safe and free, they certainly deserve to know that their loved ones will be safe while they are gone. If it wasn't for Dogs on Deployment so many more animals would have to be tragically lost because there was no one to look out for them and make sure they were housed in a safe place until their human parent came home. Keep up the great work.
As a military Brat we couldn't have dogs growing up because of quarantine rules going overseas. If we had had dogs we would have had to give them away every other year which would have been heartbreaking! I'm so glad Dogs on Deployment has made it possible for our soldiers to know their dogs are well taken care of and will be waiting for them to come home!
Dogs on deployment is an AMAZING organization. How wonderful to help our military members and often times their forget about family members (pets).
After hearing the sad stories of so many military members having to place their beloved pets in the pound while on deployment, it thrills me to see Dogs on Deployment changing this and making sure the pets are in a loving home environment. God bless Dogs on Deployment. :) Kimberly Leamon - Independent Handler with For Tails Only (www.fortailsonly.com/#Kimberly)
I wish there was some way for more of our troops, to learn about this organization and the wonderful help they give when someone is being deployed and needs a caregiving person for their pet until they return.
Review from Guidestar
This is an opportunity to reach out and support our military in a most unusual way. Imagine the stress and heartache of leaving a beloved dog or cat behind. By fostering these animals, while our dedicated service personnel perform their duties on our behalf, we can give them a chance to come home to the joy of the animal that means so much to them. Why not help out now! Foster an animal, make a donation, volunteer to support a local fund raising event.
