300,000 plus veterans are homeless every night. Combine that with an estimated 5 to 6 million shelter animals being euthanized annually and we have a broken system. Pets and Vets USA has a plan to change these statistics and make it better.

lIFE a Purpose

Pets and Vets USA rescues bully breeds from high kill shelters. They train veterans to prepare these breeds as services animals for fellow vets and the disadvantaged. Fewer dogs die, more veterans get off the streets. It's a win-win.  

The US shelter system is broken. An estimated 5 to 6 million homeless animals are killed each year.

In parallel, the programs available for.returning veterans is limited and often filled to capacity. Approximately 25% of the homeless are veterans.

Pets and Vets USA is mending these systems, saving dogs, creating hope and re-building lives. Join us and make a difference. 

Pets and Vets USA mission is to provide trust, hope and love to both veterans and bully breed shelter animals to rebuild lives, end homelessness and change the world—one life at a time.

Help change the world — one dog at a time
