Supporting Our Military and Their Beloved Pets
Across the country, military service men and women are deployed everyday, however their companion pets still need to be looked after and loved in a safe and caring environment. Without a close family member or friend to care for them, military pet owners are forced to surrender their beloved pets to animal shelters or rescue groups. With the probability of being reunited again very low, pets are either (hopefully) relocated, or more likely, euthanized due to overcrowding in animal shelters. Even today, 50% or more of the animals that enter a shelter are euthanized. Are we willing to let a soldier’s best friend be yet another sacrifice they must make to serve their country? Or do we want to assure them that their family will be safe and sound when they return?
For the men and women who put their lives on the line to protect this country every day, PACT’s Military Foster Program provides the help and support they need that is so crucial to both the animal’s well-being and the owner’s peace of mind.
