Dogs on Deployment is the nationwide non-profit organization that assists military members and veterans in finding temporary homes for their pets during times of deployment, hospitalization, training, homelessness, and other service related commitments. To date, we have fostered over 1200 pets. We also provide financial assistance to military members and veterans for the care and treatment of their pets when the cost may be prohibitive. To date, we have awarded over $500,000.00 in assistance.
The Hampton Roads Chapter of Dogs on Deployment is the largest chapter in the country. In April of this year, the chapter was awarded the 2018 Governor's Award for Community Service and Volunteerism -- Best Community Organization in the state of Virginia.
We are always looking for volunteers who would like to help our military and their pets. We are looking for volunteers to foster pets (not just dogs), help at community and military events, public speaking, and fundraising. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
