MILITARY PET RELOCATION AND RESOURCES
Our service members have a special place in our lives. Our primary location services Fort Carson, Peterson Air Force Base, Buckly Air Force Base, and Schriever Air Force Base. While we are located in close proximity to all of these posts and bases, we can work with any military family throughout the United States. We offer discounts as do some airlines to all our service members on PCS orders. We understand that relocating your pets is costly and try our best to pass on any savings to our clients without compromising our level of service. Sadly, space A for pets is becoming a thing of the past, so more military members are shouldering the cost of transporting their pets. We also know that notification and confirmation of your orders can vary, so we do not charge our service members rush fees. Some airlines will allow you to make all your own bookings. Please reference our http://www.petrelocator.com/air-travelpet-friendly-airline/ for more information.
Operation Military Pets (SPCA International)
When military families are ordered to a new base in the U.S. or around the world, moving bills pile up. The military pays for many moving costs, but they don’t help our military families relocate the family pet. The cost for pet transportation can be hundreds or even thousands of dollars. All over the United States shelters near military bases report high surrender rates when military families can’t afford to relocate their dog or cat. Military families are being torn apart.
Our mission is to keep military families together by providing financial assistance for pet relocation costs. All branches of the military can qualify for grants. Whether being relocated within the United States or anywhere in the world, SPCA International’s Operation Military Pets is here to keep pets with the ones they love.
Dogs on Deployment
Military members nation-wide confront a multitude of problems during their career. The last problem they want to worry about is what to do with their beloved family pet when it’s time for them to deploy. Asking themselves, “What should I do with my dog while I’m on deployment,” many service members have limited, to no options for their pets when they have to go overseas. Many owners have to relinquish their pets to shelters when they have nowhere else to go. Dogs On Deployment is a licensed non-profit which aims at becoming a central web-based database for service members to search for individuals or families who are willing to welcome a Dog On Deployment into their home for the length of their owner’s deployment.
Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet
Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet formed after learning that military service members across the country had pets that needed a caring, loving, and safe home to care for them during the pet owner’s deployment to fight the global war on terrorism (combat or peace keeping missions), but had been unable to find someone to care for them. This left the military pet owners with only one option, which was to relinquish their beloved pets and pet ownership rights to a humane society, animal shelter, or animal rescue group never to see their pets again, know if they were placed in a new home, or ended up being euthanized.
Loving Paws (Country Club Hills, IL)
Loving Paws, through our Camp K-9 affiliate, provides free boarding to all military personnel for the duration of their overseas deployment. In addition, Loving Paws will provide free boarding for National Guard members who are sent out of state to assist in disaster relief efforts. This is one of many ways Loving Paws can honor deployed active duty military personnel.
PACT for Animals
The PACT for Animals’ Military Foster Program is designed to provide an alternative to the unwanted surrender of beloved pets (dogs and cats) of our deployed military service members. We do this by recruiting and qualifying volunteer fosters who are willing to open their homes to provide a loving and safe environment for these pets until they can be reunited upon their owners’ return.
