We are going to the dogs (cats, wabbits, birds, guinea pigs and snakes) again. I volunteer at a local cat rescue, and we received the following notice.
Military service members love their pets. Have you ever thought about what happens to their beloved pets when they can’t find a home for them while they are called to service? Often times they are forced to leave them at a shelter because they have no other choice.
We want to help them have a choice.
We’re a National Non-Profit that offers Foster homes to Pets of Military personnel while they are deployed, in training or during times of hardship. These animals are loved and cared for (up to 24 months) and then returned to their owners when they get back from serving our country.
Please take a look at our web site: www.guardianangelsforsoldierspet.org
We are always looking for Volunteers, Foster Homes or Military in need.
Hopefully if we spread the word we can save a few loved animals from ending up in the shelters.
At the cat rescue training, I had to fight the stereotype of “all military abandon their animals when they move”! And this notification made them think about WHY military members sometimes have to give up their animals. So – what do you think? Do you have room for a foster pet? Do you know someone who is deploying and has nowhere to leave Buster or Boomer? Here’s an answer.
