Review for Dogs on Deployment, Escondido, CA, USA
I heard about Dogs on Deployment through social media and thought it was a fabulous idea. I registered as a volunteer foster and am currently fostering a wonderful dog while his owner is deployed. This sweet pup came to us as an emergency placement when his current foster was unable to continuing caring for him. His poor owner was already deployed overseas and so stressed out about needing to find a home for his beloved pup while dealing with limited communication abilities. He was able to talk to a coordinator at DoD and was given my number. Within two hours of talking to him for the first time, his pup was home with my family. Upon hearing that his pup was safe and happy, the obvious reduction in this young man's stress level was all the thanks I could ever ask for. Shortly after his deployment, this pup was involved in an accident that required several surgeries. Dogs On Deployment was a great support for his owner and helped with medical bills. This may be my first time fostering for this great organization, but it won't be my last. I've loved this pup like my own and, while it will be sad to see him go, it will be incredibly rewarding to see him reunited with his owner, right where he belongs.
