Dogs on Deployment is an amazing non-profit that finds temporary homes for the dogs of military families while they’re deployed. The project was started by a military couple who needed to find a foster family for their own dogs when they were unexpectedly both deployed at the same time.
Meet Dogs on Deployment
The couple identified a huge need in their community, and wanted to help solve it. They created a way for military families to feel good about leaving their pets behind, knowing they’d be well cared for until they were reunited.
The organization connects volunteer caretakers with dogs in their area looking for a temporary home. DoD also accepts donations, and visitors to the site can sponsor a dog to help cover veterinary care and feeding while the family is away.
Reunited (and it feels so good)
