A Pets For Vets Match Story

John and Dexter

John is an Army Veteran who served our country from 1973 to 1976. He was stationed in Korea and then in Texas. He reached out to us to see if we might be able to help him find a cat to spend time with and to help combat his loneliness. John had lost his last cat and was missing the companionship that a cat provides while sitting contentedly upon your lap!


In came Dexter… From the minute John saw his new cat, you could see the smile on his face and the beginning of a forever bond! Within a few days, Dexter was settled in and was watching old movies and playing with John in his new home!
