Dogs on Deployment is a service member-ran non-profit founded in June 2011 by two military members. DoD provides an online resource for deploying military members to search for volunteers who are willing to board their pets while they're away. Many military members are forced to relinquish their pets because of deployments and the scarcity of boarding options. DoD aims to alleviate this by providing a resource to seek help. Since their launch in June 2011, DoD has helped place eight dogs in DoD Boarder homes and has recruited over 120 volunteer boarders across the United States. DoD operates nationwide and is open for use by all military members during deployments and training exercises.
Dogs on Deployment relies on public support to achieve continued success. If you have the time, space and commitment to board a military member's pet while they're deployed, please visit our website to register as a DoD Boarder. If you cannot board but still want to help, we humbly accept donations, which can be made on our website.
Currently, Dogs on Deployment is looking for a volunteer to help a military member in Mountain Home who is deploying in May. She may be contacted through our website's Pets in Need page.
Help DoD reach out to military members in need and potential boarders by giving your support.
