Matches From Around the Nation

Pets For Vets has matched Veterans and pets around the nation. When a Veteran is matched with the right pet, both lives change for the better. The Veteran saves the animal and welcomes him/her into a loving home. The pet provides the Veteran with unconditional love and support, easing stress, depression, loneliness and anxiety. Together, they share a Super Bond™ that provides them both with a whole new “leash” on life. Search through our match stories, below, and see for yourself how both the Veteran's and the pet's lives have been changed forever.
