Pets for Vets was developed in the spirit of the Maddie’s Fund Adoptathon that took place in June of this year. Understanding the importance of companionship and the healing bond between man and his furry friends, HALO will match qualified veterans with pets at no charge.
“In this way, HALO hopes to raise awareness about pet education and promote the bond between people and animals,” said HALO President Tamara Reed. “We work with many local organizations in creating a no-kill nation and look forward to the day when every pet has a loving home.”
“There are just as many pets in need of loving homes as there are people in need of loving pets,” said HALO Cat Manager Verlene Leonardo. “This event will give us the opportunity to bring the two together.”
Veterans who wish to take advantage of the Pets for Vets special event should contact HALO to arrange a meeting with the available animals. Proof of veteran status is required at the time of adoption. There is a limit of one pet per vet during this event, and normal adoption procedures still apply.
