Dogs on Deployment is a very special agency and one I am proud to support. As a former Army wife, and as the mother of a sergeant in Special Forces, I always have a very special place in my heart for those who serve. And, as "the crazy sighthound lady", pets and their well being are especially important to me. So these beautiful people found a need and formed a group to fill it! And they're doing a wonderful job serving the military and their animals! Makes me happy to be able to be a long-term, regular contributor.
Dogs on Deployment provides such an important service for our military families. Pets are family members and it's such a great stress for our soldiers when they don't have options for their pets while they are in service to our country. Dogs on Deployment fills a vital need, keeps animals out of kill shelters and relieves worry and stress for our military families. People are always saying "Support Our Troops" Dogs on Deployment does just that. Every time I share one of their posts or give a donation, I feel am giving to those who give so much to all of America. Dogs on Deployment saw the need and they are working to fill it every day. They are heroes to me, just as our soldiers are.
This is a great service.....any military member has enough on their mind protecting and serving our country. Our animals are part of our families and these deployed owners need to have a safe place to care for their family member while deployed. THIS ENABLES THAT TO ACTUALLY HAPPEN!

awesome group supporting our Military members! I am the mother of a marine and love dogs! Hoping my son does not ever have to use this group but grateful that they are here if he is called to leave and serve
Review from Guidestar
I live in MN and have been waiting for my chance to sponser a pet from here. As the mom of an Active Marine....I would love to share my home with a DOD pet.
My company, Halogen Designs, has been working closely with Alisa and Shawn from Dogs on Deployment to improve its website. Dogs on Deployment has definitely stretched every dollar that they receive in order to make the most impact for the deployed military pet owners. I have had the pleasure of helping DoD temporarily fix its current site while the new one is put into place.
I am writing today to confirm what many others have said: that DoD is a very good steward of the donations that it receives and that the money that is donated turns into real, tangible results. If you are considering donating to DoD, either time or money, you can know that your donations are improving the lives of military pet owners.
The people of Dogs on Deployment are God's angels on earth. They support the love of our men and women in uniform and their families keep their pets safe while they are on deployment, whether for training or in harm's way.
This organization is desperately needed for a cause so few know about. Until I heard about DOD, I didn't realize how large scale of a problem deployed military personnel have with their pets. DOD is truly serving these wonderful people and their pets while they are deployed.
Most amazing and inspirational charity, and so needed. I spread the word wherever I can, I think everyone needs to know about this service, it puts minds at rest for those working hard to keep the country safe and I hope it grows to other countries too.
Amazing organization who helps those who often get left behind due to the requirements of the military. As a military spouse with 2 dogs, I 100% support this organization and its cause.
