1. ForshelterstobeincludedinPetsforPatriots’database of partner organizations, they must offer an adoption discount to veterans and active military. The Dumb Friends League offers 50 percent off adoptions for our brave citizens who have served this county.
2. Adopters must have served in or be currently serving in the military.
3.Pets must fall into a "harder to place" category-- meaning, they might be over a certain age, have a special need, have spent a certain amount of time at the shelter or weigh more than 40 pounds.
Through the program, the Dumb Friends League is introduced to a network of compassionate adopters who are willing to care for some of our more dif cult to place pets. For patriots, they receive a generous gift card and post adoption services from Pets for Patriots, including subsidized veterinary care. All these services are in addition to what the League offers all adopters. All cats and dogs adopted from the Dumb Friends League are spayed or neutered, receive age-appropriate vaccinations, including rabies, a microchip ID, a follow- up visit with a participating veterinarian and 30 days of free pet insurance from PetFirst.
It's a win, win situation for shelters and adopters alike and one we're proud to be a part of, serving those who have served us for so long.
The beginning of the Journey for the two
Austin, a veteran himself having completed two, nine- month tours in Afghanistan and Kuwait, was accepted into the Pets for Patriots program. It was through their online database of partner shelters Austin  rst saw Buddy on the League adoption page. He knew he wanted a bigger dog that he could run with, and Buddy certainly met that criteria. Also, a sucker for  oppy-eared dogs, Austin met Buddy, and the rest was history. The two are now happily enjoying the company of each other, adventuring together and spending plenty of time cuddling. Thanks to the collaboration with Pets for Patriots, these two were matched and their bond grows stronger every day.
