PETS FOR PATRIOTS
We’re proud to make the joys of pet ownership achievable and affordable to members of the military community through the Pets for Patriots Program. Member Patriots come from all branches of the U.S. military and are in various stages of their military lives. Some are previous pet owners, while others are poised to discover the enjoyment of pet ownership for the very first time. Some want a companion pet to ease the stress of military transition or other emotional challenges, and others simply want a new best friend and loyal companion.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
Any current or former member of the U.S. military may apply to Pets for Patriots to become a member Patriot, and joining is free. We accept applications from men and women at all stages of their military careers:
- Inactive reserve
- National guard
- Marine Corps
- Air Force
- Coast Guard
WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A MEMBER PATRIOT
We believe in the transformative power of the everyday dog or cat. You might be surprised at how a wet nose, gentle paw or wagging tail changes you day – and your life – for the better.
The Pets for Patriots program strives to do their part to help member Patriots find, support, and keep their honorably adopted pets. This includes:
Adoption special: The Humane Society of Tampa Bay provides a special adoption discount for Pets for Patriots members.
Discounted pet care: Minimum, ongoing 10% discount from a veterinary partner near you
Annual gift card: $150 gift card to PETCO, PetSmart or Tractor Supply (your choice) upon your eligible adoption, renewable annually as long as you own your honorably adopted pet
Members-only deals: specialty pet item discounts on our members-only secure site Of course the greatest benefit is the unconditional love and friendship of your new best friend. Find out if you’re eligible for The Pets for Patriots program and about the proof of service we require.
