Pets for Vets® is committed to incorporating the values of diversity, equity and inclusion in the operations and governance of our organization. We pledge to actively foster and promote these values within the composition of our Board
of Directors, our Advisory Team, our employees, our volunteers, our hiring practices, our volunteer recruitment and in the conduct of our programs and activities. Pets for Vets proudly supports the LGBTQ+ community.
We strive to attract, retain and develop personnel who reflect our nation’s communities. Through our annual BIPOC grant, we invest in our trainers’ continuing development.
"You would think that a dog is just a dog. That may be true for some, but not me.I used to sit at home, alone, and just let life pass me by, but now I have a reason to get up. Even if it’s feeding Samson, or taking him for walks, he has motivated me to live again."
"He’s more than just a friend. He’s my battle buddy. He’s my left hand. We’re connected by a leash, but it’s really our umbilical cord. He’s sometimes more tuned into me than I’m tuned into me. He knows more about me than I do sometimes. He lets me know what’s going on."
