My family fostered 3 kitty's and one puppy for 13 months. AMAZING experience. We have always had pets and when we found our home empty, Guardian Angels became available. We took the whole family and it was so much fun. We took the dog on vacations ( 2 ) with us and they became little 4 legged members of our community also. The neighbors all got to know them and love them too. They will be soooo missed as our home seems to empty this morning, but all of them are home, happy and healthy and we have some of the best memories. What a fantastic experience.

I was able to foster 2 cats from Tennessee from October until June. I loved have the kitties around and appreciated being able to help serve 2 of our country's armed forces. I was given constant support from the Indiana Coordinator, Carol. I was also able to communicate with the cats' real mom. I hope that I was able to help ease her mind while she was gone. When she came back, I was able to meet with her. I would definitely do this again!

My husband and I both were deploying to Afghanistan and had no one to watch our two cats while we were away for a year. I checked in with Guardian Angels for Soldiers and they were able to link us up with a foster family within a month. The organization even helped ferry our beloved pets from our home near Nashville to Beth's home near Chicago. Beth kept me up to date with updates on our kitties throughout the deployment, with so many other things to worry about, I'm glad the cats had a safe and happy place to live. When I got home, I was able to travel to Chicago to meet Beth and her dad and it was wonderful meeting them and picking up my cats for the drive home. Great organization, I'm so blessed to have volunteers help out like that.

We had a family emergency and within 6 hours a foster family was found for our dog Bear. The Maguire family emailed me very quickly and told me about their dogs and sent pictures. They also offered to pick up Bear from the kennel so he would only have to stay there up to two days. The family was in contact with me the entire time and kept me updated on how Bear was doing. When it was time to come home and get him they offered to bring him to our house (another 3 hour drive for them) but I said they have done more than enough and went to pick him up. The Maguires were there and were more than friendly with me and Bear came home with more manners than he left with. I am more than happy with this organization and would recommend it to ANYONE!

I recently finished a foster of a wonderful pit bull names Tyson. Tyson's owners, Desirae and Nik, are both in the Air Force and were being deployed at the same time. They were getting pretty nervous as they could not find a good situation for him when GASP matched us up. Tyson was with me for about six months and became a wonderful addition to my pack of two dogs and two cats. Though big and energetic he is truly a sweet and loving dog. I feel honored to have been able to help out two people who sacrifice so much to serve our country. I also feel I gained two new friends in the experience. Thank you for the wonderful work GASP does!

I happened to be at an animal shelter one day with a friend when a sailor walked in to turn in her dog as she was being deployed the next day and couldn't find anyone to take care of the pup. It was obvious she was heartbroken so I told her I'd take the dog and network her out to a more long term foster as my hands are already full with rescues/rehabs. Guardian Angels for Soldier's Pets stepped right up and offered to find a suitable foster home for this girl. The owner is ecstatic that she'll still have her beloved girl when she returns from overseas instead of having to wonder what happened to her in a shelter. The dedication of the coordinators for GASP is simply astounding and, as a Navy wife, it's comforting to know we have options should I find myself needing assistance while when my husband's deployed.

We are the second foster home for a cat whose owner was deployed in 2011. As it turned out, she wanted to be the only cat in the house and her previous foster home already had cats. I was so impressed with the care GASP and the previous foster took in getting the cat to a more favorable environment. Volunteers set up a relay to transport her to us and made sure to contact her owner and ease his mind. I cannot imagine having to face giving up a pet for a temporary deployment so we are thrilled to be able to keep that from happening even for one soldier. The volunteers are dedicated to the cause and I would highly recommend this to anyone with love to give as a volunteer, or for a soldier in need of care for a pet. A bonus for me has been "meeting" other volunteers through social media and hearing their funny stories, and just being part of this amazing group. Thank you!

I have been a Foster Mom for two pugs, Sasha and Jake for 5 months. It has been the most rewarding experience not just for myself, but for my husband and other dogs. I have become very close friends with their Dad who is deployed in Afghanistan until 10/12 and this new friendship and the love of these dogs is amazing. I wanted to do something special for our Service Members and this is this best way for me since I am disabled and on limited funds. All I need to give is love!

My experience is a little different then most of GASP volunteers. First, I hunted out an organization that would allow me to foster, and Second, I have had fosters for Deployed, Returning and VA/Retirees. Many years ago, I had to give up my 9 year old cat that I had since she was weaned because I could not find a place to live that I could afford to rent and that would also allow my Puckett to move in. Luckily the county I live in had a very helpful rescue group that was able to place her for me. This experience nearly broke my heart, and I determined that when I was able to, I would find a way to foster so that someone else would not have to go thru it. So, I found GASP and applied. I was quickly accepted, but it took a little time to find my first fur babies - I have had 5 Foster Kitties to date! The first MSM I fostered for was 14 mth deployment to Afghanistan. The second family was returning from Germany and military temp housing did not allow cats. I had their two babies for a few months. My current foster is a single pure bred whose mom is receiving VA assistance. I LOVE this group!

I submitted my application to Foster and within a week got a call to foster two Dobies, who's Mom was being deployed. It was so rewarding and a pleasure to have them. On the countdown now. Will miss them so much. GASP is a wonderful program that a lot of Soldiers and Sailors are very gratefull to.

I am an active duty soldier in the U.S. Army and had received orders for Honduras. After reaching out to friends and family, with no luck; I came across GASP and submitted a request to find a temporary foster home for my two cats while i was out of the country. Within a week they found a match and I was able to PCS without a worry in the world. My foster family and I utilized their standard contract and modified it to a mutual agreement.

Four years prior when I was shipping off for basic training the same situation occurred. Under the pressure with a looming "ship off date" I had no choice but to place my cats in a long term boarding home which cost me $350 a month. Had my recruiter been aware of GASP then I could have utilized that money to pay off outstanding debt. I find it sad that organizations similar to GASP are not able to be easily recognized by the Armed Services and disseminated from the top down so everyone is aware of the options that are available.

I am not knocking the resources that are already established to assist service members but to know that an organization like GASP has existed since the Gulf War and that my recruiter was not able to provide me their name as an economical solution to finding a temporary home for my two cats is incomprehensible. Somewhere at the top, within the walls of the Pentagon, there has to be an office that organizations can contact through which their services can be offered to not only existing service members but recruits and retirees as well.

I am so impressed with the services that GASP has to offer that I am now committed to volunteering and attempting to spread awareness of their organization; or should I say, OUR organization. As a soon to be promoted E5/Sergeant, I find it my responsibility to make other service members aware and to asset them when they have a need such as I had.

I'm a single male who left for Basic Training back in '07 and could not find friends or family to provide a temporary foster home for my two cats. At the last minute before leaving I found a boarding home that had an opening. I ended up for almost a full year, as I completed my basic and advance training for the Army, paying the equivalent of a car payment every month to make sure I was going to get my two cats back. I was also making an actual car payment too; you can imagine as a Private how challenging this was. The years after found me with my own place so I was able to take care of my two cats. Then Uncle Sam send me on a Short Tour for one year and so I reach out to the boarding home this time with no luck; filled to capacity. I sent an e-mail to GASP who put me in touch with the regional director for the MD/DC area and they had a couple who recently volunteered. After going though the meeting process which are very well layed out ahead of time it seemd like a perfect match. The couple and I were able to come to a financial agreement which helped me out favorably and they were able to have two more furry bundles of love in addition to the two they already owned.

GASP had provided some "back up" suggestions in case this didn't work out for me and I think it is very realistic for one to expect that it's not always going to work out. If you think about the various aspects of everything involved, ie: Are there pets already in the Foster Home? Will those pets get along with your? Some families can only care for one type of pet; dog/cat. Does the area you live in have enough Foster Volunteer Homes? Have you started your search in advance to allow for the meet and greet to make sure your pets or the Foster Family are comfortable with one another?

I'm amazed with the success rate for GASP and the "Army" of Volunteers who understand this unique service they are providing to us service members. I Solute You!!!

Love the organization and get to help not only the soldiers and pets. Everyone here wears multiple hats to keep it going but it is very much worth it and very rewarding helping to support those that help keep our country safe. It is also very rewarding working with the people who decide to become our foster home volunteers. Without them we could not do what we do for our soldiers and their pets.

I started to foster for GASP a couple of months ago for soldiers dog named Guido. The people behind this organization have been professional and very caring and are there when you need them for support if needed or advise. Being a foster home for this soldier has been the best of both worlds. Helping him, and saving a dog from having to go to a shelter. I highly recommend this organization for Vets, soldiers and Military families. GASP is the best thing that has come into peoples lives and I am so proud to be part of them and proud to help a soldier in need. I hope to serve GASP and soldiers for many more years to come. My foster is a great dog and I hope that more people will open their hearts and homes to help a soldier and GASP Thank you.

We were asked to foster 2 dogs for a deployed soldier. We were to be their 3rd foster home in a month, as the first 2 didn't work out. Sara, one of the volunteer coordinators drove the dogs up to us (we're in Pennsylvania, she was coming from Maryland) on Friday evening of a holiday weekend, and made sure she stayed long enough to introduce the dogs to our dogs, familiarize us with the fosters, and make sure we were comfortable.

The dogs were with us for 5 months, and during that time we had regular contact with their owner. Upon her return, she came personally to pick up her "babies."

All expenditures for the animals fostered through this organization are paid by the pet parents, terms and expectations are clearly laid out, and the organization truly has the best interests of soldiers and their pets at heart.

GASP assists military personnel (both active and retired) who are deployed or in an emergency situation.

I am an administrative volunteer, helping to filter foster applicants and the military service members to their regional coordinators. With this comes assisting one of the national directors to keep the map updated to more easily facilitate locating appropriate foster homes more quickly. Intermittently, I assist with very short term emergency fostering.

By matching up foster homes with military pets, we are able to keep the members of our armed forces connected with their pets while they are unable to care for them. They are reunited when the term of service or emergency is over. This keeps these pets out of the rescue system and keeps many of them from an otherwise unhappy ending.

Please pass the word about this very worthy organization. Their volunteers work tirelessly to support our country and those that defend it.

Guardian Angles for Soldier's Pets is a much needed organization. They are doing a wonderful work. My son is currently deployed and was lucky enough to have his Mom take care of his dog while he is gone. Many military people don't have the option of family or friends to care for their pets. GASP ensures that many pets will have the care and love they needs while their "people" have to be away.

I heard a about GASP from a local news station and just had to help them. What a wonderful thing they do! I had never thought about the pets of the brave men and women fighting for our country and the fact that they might have no where to go when their owner deployed! I quickly signed up to foster and our family has happily been able to foster twice. It has been such a rewarding experience to be able to provide a safe and loving (temporary) home for these dogs while their owners fought for our country! Thank you so much GASP for remembering the "other" family members of our troops!!

I currently foster to dogs, a greyhound and a pit bull, for a deployed military couple. When I was in Afghanistan, I was lucky that my parents could care for my dog but not everyone has that option. While it's been challenging at times (goodbye my favorite slippers!) it's been one of the most rewarding things I have done. To know I have given peace of mind to two soldiers serving their country is a wonderful feeling.

I have signed up to be a foster home for a soldier's pet in NY. I have not had the opportunity to do this yet but one day my services may be needed.
After having a brother and son currently serving in the US Army i know how hard it is for families to be separated. I can only image how hard also it would be to leave a beloved pet behind. (Being a pet owner myself). This organization helps take one more burden off the minds of our deploying soldiers. It is a great cause and well organized unit.

I first learned of Guardian Angels For Soldier's Pets from the evening news. The news story showed a brave soldier fighting over seas and taking joy in watching a home videos of his dog playing in the water with his GASP foster family in the states. I knew I had to be a part of this wonderful organization. I submitted my application.

I am so proud to say that my famiily and I are now a GASP foster family. We are waiting to find out if we will be fostering a sweet pup named Addi.

I am very impressed with how professional and compassionate this organization is. They want what is best for the soldiers and their pets as well as fosters and their families. A pet will be placed with a foster family that is similar to their own family so there will be a smooth transition for everyone involved. The New York Director of GASP is a wonderful woman with an absolutely enormous heart! I will gladly be a GASP volunteer to give something back to those who give so much.

I am a nurse and worked for 34 years in ICU, ED and taught eldercare. And learned early on that pets are a very important part of wellness, and coping, and families. I remember with tears the day we brought an elderly spaniel up the back stairs to lie beside his elderly human for one final time. And that dog knew he was saying goodbye. Last year, as I started retirement paperwork, I read an article in our local paper about GASP. And my heart thumped as I realized, I could do this.That I truly, really, wanted to do this. I could apply and foster a pet for our service personnel. My son in law, and nephew are both in the Airforce. By doing this, I could help pay back a small part of what our service folks are doing for us. The application and screening process reassured me that GASP is truly committed to the goal of fostering in a very professional way. I believe that this organization is worthy of our continued support. I am impressed by the comprehensive backround information that is provided to me in every email request for a foster home. And grateful for their prompt communication. And especially thankful that an organization such as this, exists.

This is my first time fostering a dog for one of our service personal. This has been a great experience for my whole family. It makes you feel good inside knowing that we are helping our service personal. We have fostered a siberian husky named Addi. Her owner Max has been very grateful that this program is available or he would have to give up his dog permanently.

I volunteered for GASP and also have fostered two dogs in 2009. The organization takes in pets for soldiers who are being deployed and finds them foster homes until the soldier returns. They will go through great lengths to assure the safety of the animals. At times, a foster situation cannot be done for an entire rotation, so GASP will find another home for the pets. I am one of these cases. I had found a foster family for two large dogs that belonged to a soldier who deployed. After about 6 months, the arrangement did not work out any more due to the fact that the fostering soldier dad also deployed and the foster mom could not handle their kids, their dogs and cats and the two foster dogs. When we were unable to find a new foster family (back then the program was not as developed as today and less foster families available) my husband I decided to add the two boys to our pack of 6 dogs. Their soldier mom returned another 8 months later and was happy to pick up her boys safe and sound.
That's what GASP is all about - caring for a soldier's pet and ensuring its safety by all means necessary.

I'm a foster mom for GASP and this experience has been wonderful for both me and my five dogs. They immediately accepted Demo as a member of the pack and I realized I could foster a dog long term, get attached but still be able to let go because what his mom is doing is so important, protecting our country and our way of life. I feel very privileged to be a part of this organization because it allows me to give back to those who have given so much for us, even if it is in such a small way.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this organization. We found out my husband would be off to Afghanistan in 3 weeks for about 14 months just 5 days after we had found out I was pregnant with our third (surprise!) child. We were living over an hour away from my place of employment and my children's school so it was decided my children and I would stay with my parent's during the week and at home on the weekends. This meant keeping our two dogs during the time of deployment would be impossible as my mom could not take them and they couldn't be home alone 5 days a week. Giving them away or taking them to a shelter was out of the question as they are part of our family and that would have devestated my children.

Originally my inlaws stepped in and volunteerd to keep the dogs for the entire deployment but 3 months into it they decided they could no longer keep their commitment and abruptly told me to come pick up the dogs and would not keep them even for a couple of days so I could find alternate arrangements. I cannot tell you what turmoil this caused in my already super chaotic world.

Desperate I turned to one of the SSGs of my husbands home unit to see if he knew of anyone that could help me out. He went on Google and found GASP. I filled out an application that night and had a response from them the next morning. I had asked that my dogs be kept together if at all possible but I would be willing to split them up if necessary. I was advised it would probably be very difficult to keep them together but they would see what they could do. Within an hour I got another email from GASP letting me know they had found someone who would take both my dogs and they got me in touch with her that day.

Our Angel is Barb. She stepped in and took my dogs into her home as if they were her own. She never accepted a dime from me for anything (I tried really hard, trust me), sent me updates and pictures frequently and let me and the kids come visit the "furry" kids whenever we could. To this day, Barb is still a very important part of our family. She will take the dogs whenever we go on vacation and we keep in touch frequently. She will be in our lives forever.

I can never thank GASP and Barb enough for everything they did for me an my family during a very difficult time in our lives. Thank God for organizations like this that allow families to keep their animals during a very stressful time and thank God for people like Barb, who open their hearts and homes to our pets as if they were their own.

I have had 2 foster dogs. One was only a few months, but Deycon will be here for about another year.

It broke my heart when my Navy daughter had to get rid of her cats before her deployment to Kuwait. I'm allergic or I would have taken them. I think she had an easier time handing her infant son to me.

This organization makes sure our service men and women have one less worry and will still have their fur family when they get home.

I am honored to help those who put it ALL on the line for us.

Fostering Nikki has been one of the best experiences my family has ever done. Both of Nikki's parents are deployed and so is my husband. Nikki came to stay with us the day before my husband deployed. She has really helped my kids (ages 2 and 4), deal with Daddy being gone by giving them something else to focus on and care for. She has become a very important part of this family.

I am very disappointed in this group. My Sister called them to see if they could help her while she is deployed and was turned away. I can not keep her cat if I could I would. She is serving and has served for many years and is upset she will have to give him away.She is in the San Diego area and is getting ready to go to Iraq sadly she won't have her jack to come back to. So postive feed back I have NONE! Sad, BB

BB have sent you a private message requesting more details as to the situation. As with any nonprofit organization with limited resources we may not be able to help everyone, but we just don't turn our military service members away, but do explain to them as to why we may not be able to assist in their specific situation (no foster home available or time constraints in locating and placing a specific pet into a specific foster home. If we are unable to assist we do provide suggetions as to other organizations with similitar foster home programs that may be able to assist them. Please contact me so I may ask additional questions in regards to this situation. Respectfully, Linda Spurlin-Dominik, Founder/National President, Guardian Angels for Soldier's Pet.

As the poster did not or would not provide us with specifics such as the pet owner's name and/or the pet or pets involved names, we are unable to confirm that what has been posted actually happened, as mentioned in the July 12th comment, what has been posted is not how our process works or is handled. The only thing we could determine was this supposedly happened to a military service member located in CA, whereas the FH coordinator is an experienced coordinator who has been with our organization since 2006 and coordinating FH home placements in CA since Sept 2009. Last communication with the poster was was going to CA to pick up the pet and bring back home to care for til her sister returned from the deployment.

After seeing their story on NBC Nightly News I knew I had found an organization that was completely worth. I didn't realize how worthwhile it was however until I got our first foster dog. Fortunately our case is different and his owner was just needed at a different post in the States. There has never been a moment when I wasn't able to get in contact with some one from GASP if I needed anything or had any questions. The best part is knowing that every day you're making a difference in a soldiers life and making it one less thing that they need to worry about. I'm so pround to say that I'm a volunteer for this organization!

I just started volunteering for GASP but as soon as I saw a story about them on my local news station I knew immediately I wanted to help! In two weeks I will be fostering a wonderful dog for the next year and I'm so excited about it. I even got to interview a potential foster parent who is now in the process of getting her own foster dog. No matter what your view is on the war these soldiers need our support! And what a wonderful way to show them how much we care by taking care of their pets.

I have really enjoyed being a part of GASP. It is wonderful to see how many people support our military whether they support the war or not. I come from a military family and I wish this would have been avaiable to us back then. Pets make a house a home, so being able to have your pet back after deployment or hardship, makes everything so much easier. I cannot wait to continue my support of GASP and see how far we can grow.

My experience is new, and all so positive. I reviewed the website and found all of the information I needed to make an informed decision. My final decision, THIS IS A GROUP I WANT TO BE PART OF and I volunteered. For example, my application was reviewed by the founder and CEO within the day and we had a telephone conference the next day. I look forward to my new position as National Volunteer Recruiter~these people are making a positive difference in solider's lives.

I have experience great reviews about this organization and have Guadian Angels For Soldier's Pet as a referral. I am deployed and just lost all three of the families that are on my per careplan while serving in Afghanistan. I am wondering if anyone may be able to assist with my pets who have been placed in a Kennel. To complicate matters, my residence is overseas (Heidelberg, Germany). My dogs would be so relieved to get out of their cage and not be stuck there for the six months remaining our deployment. If there could be any assistance, I would be soooooo appreciative...as well as my girls-Zoi and Sugar. If possible contact me at jill.henderson@us.army.mil, and jjhendoo@hotmail.com.

Hi All, I am currenly fostering 2 cats for Guardian Angels for Soldiers Pet. This unique experience has shown me that its possible to be a foster mom and still not have to worry about gettng too attached. These 2 precious babies are spoilt rotten and I am helping to further that. When they get to go home they will be able to say that they had a good place to stay til mom came to get them. I know its hard to take an animal for a period of time while their soldier mom or dad is gone but when they see and hear that same soldiers voice there is no way you can deny they know mom and dad. If there is nothing more that I can do but open my home to a soldiers pet I will do it over and over because the unconditional love they that pet gives while it spends time in your home can never be changed. They help you get thru your day ad add ountlss memories to your life tha will stay with you forever. So open up ,take a chance and share your life with a pet for awhile, you will be glad you did. I am.

This organization is so hands on, caring, over the top. Everyone that volunteers for this organization stretches theirself to the limit on finding foster homes for the military service member that has applied for assistance. Countless hours are spent making sure a military service member leaves for his tour of duty knowing that his pet's are safe and will be there when he returns.
