I am excited to announce that I am the Rochester Regional Coordinator for Dogs on Deployment! Dogs on Deployment (www.DogsonDeployment.org) is a National non-profit organization founded by a military couple to assist other service members find temporary foster homes for their pets.
As the coordinator, I will be responsible for attending community events to help promote awareness of this great organization, recruit other volunteers and obtain donations. Volunteers can assist by either doing the same or boarding pets during their “deployments.”
Dogs on Deployment promotes responsible, life long pet ownership .They advocate for military pet owner rights, provide educational resources and grant financial assistance for military pet owners during times of emergency. To date, they have placed 500 dogs in temporary foster homes and have awarded $300,000 to military families in need. Dogs on Deployment partners with local rescue organizations and encourages people to adopt from a local pet rescue or shelter. If a surrender is needed, they encourage the pet owner to surrender to the same.
On Monday, September 1, 2014, PetSaver Superstore will be donating 10% of all of their sales to Dogs on Deployment! Wow! Support a great cause while shopping at a local merchant for all of your pet care needs!
Dogs on Deployment was founded to assist Military personnel, Veterans and Wounded Warriors find temporary foster homes for their pets so they can fulfill their duties. I am excited to be able to do my share by being Rochester Coordinator for this great organization!
