Pets for Patriots
Pets for Patriots is a nonprofit organization that has created a nationwide network to help place shelter pets into loving homes with veteran and service members of the United States military.
Thanks to Pets for Patriots, we are able to offer $25 off adoption fees to Pets for Patriots members who adopt an eligible pet from DHA.
To qualify for Pets for Patriots’ program benefits, the honorably adopted pet must be a dog or cat two years old or order, a dog weighing over 40 pounds regardless of age, or a special needs pet (as determined by DHA).
Offered at no cost to its members, Pets for Patriots is open to individuals from any branch of the United States military and at any stage of their careers. Those interested must first apply at petsforpatriots.org and provide proof of their military service or honorable discharge. Approval typically takes two business days, after which veterans can visit DHA for assistance in choosing their new best friend.
Starting in 2011, DHA became the first (and only) organization in Delaware to participate in the Pets for Patriots program.
