For many military members, it’s not always easy owning a dog, especially if they live alone. Finding proper care for their dog while actively serving can be quite the challenge. A non-profit called Dogs On Deployment aims to solve this issue for military members, veterans, and first responders.
Dogs On Deployment believes no dog should ever have to be put in a shelter due to a service commitment. They have built a team of volunteer boarders across the United States centralized around the major military bases. DOD operates by connecting a service member with a potential boarder. The owner can choose the best boarder and home for their dog based on their individual needs. The boarders will take care of the dog until the owner returns from service. Dogs On Deployment offers free pet boarding and financial grants as well.
