Help for Pets of Deployed Military

Please post any foster agencies available for those service members who have been deployed-either if your group takes them as a matter of policy, or if you know of any reputable groups who do.

Thanks!

Re: Help for Pets of Deployed Military

Here's another one:

http://www.alphataxservices.com/mili...fostercare.asp

Although Odin went to my best friend when I was deployed and Hop Sing went to my sister, I do know of many fine stories from troops in my unit who had their pets fostered through both Guardian Angels for Soldier's Pets and Operation Noble Foster.

My own state is starting up their own fostering service in readiness for our deployment next year to Afghanistan. This way pets can stay within the state and soldiers can more easily get their pets to the foster provider.

Thanks, Jean, for providing a spot for this information to become a sticky.

Re: Help for Pets of Deployed Military

Anyone know if these groups will take and place dogs surrendered to shelters by military personnel?

My experience with these is that they are all full to bursting and closed to intake.

I have no experience with that. That would be a rescue and that's not what the ones I've had soldiers in my unit deal with them about. They only do fostering so far as I know. I have had several soldiers in my unit use a couple of these groups to great effect. This still goes on. We just had about a hundred troops from my state return from Afghanistan last fall and some had used Guardian Angels and got their pets back. They weren't in my unit, but I attended their homecoming.

Fostering available for deployed military

I am a member of Soldiers Angels, (we adopt out/send care packages ect to deployed military and have veterans projects). I came accross this today while working on the site, it is a program that has members who are willing to foster pets for service members who get deployed, and then the pets are reunited with their families when they return. I thought this was a great program and worth posting so people know they have options, and something we can use to refer people to should they need this service. The link is http://www.guardianangelsforsoldierspet.org/
