How to participate
getting started with the Pets For Patriots® Program
The first step is to visit the Pets for Patriots® website to complete and submit a pre-qualification application. The certification process can take as little as two days, but must be completed through Pets for Patriots® prior to adopting from Rescue Village. Once you are approved by Pets for Patriots®, visit Rescue Village to select a dog or cat for adoption.
All animals eligible for adoption through this program will be indicated with a tag on their cage or kennel as a “Pets for Patriots®” adoptable animal. Our adoption counselors will work with each and every veteran to pick out his or her perfect companion. They will walk through the adoption process and make sure all the benefits of this program are understood.
