Pets for Patriots: Be a Pet’s Hero
Companion Pet Adoption For Service and Veteran Members of the United States Military
Pets for Patriots is a 501(c)(3) charity connecting adult and other at-risk shelter pets with members of the U.S. military. Individuals are eligible to join our program at any stage of their careers and from all armed forces.
By adopting eligible dogs and cats through shelter partners, Pets for Patriots members gain access to ongoing discounted veterinary care and financial support towards the purchase of pet food and other basics.
Petco Foundation Awards Generous Grant to Support Golden Paws and Other Adoption Activities!
Golden Paws Senior Program assists both senior shelter animals with placement into a new home and also gives senior adopters over the age of 65 an opportunity to adopt a new companion at reduced or even no cost!
All senior pets over the age of 7 will have adoption fees reduced by more than 50% of the regular cost of $75 to $35. This reduced fee of $35 will also apply to any adoption by a senior adopter who is 65 or older. We'll waive the ENTIRE adoption fee if a senior adopts a senior pet. For details, click here.
Wanted: Foster Families!
We're looking for volunteers to provide foster homes for shelter animals. Opening your home gives animals the extra care necessary so they may be placed for adoption. Some require temporary foster homes because they are too young for adoption, may have an injury or may need a different environment than the Adoption Center can provide. If you are interested, click here for more information.
