Helping local veterans and their companion animals

How we help

We are a non-profit organization, founded by a retired Army veteran,  that exists solely to help local veterans and their companion animals.

 

The health benefits of owning a pet are well known, and include reducing anxiety and depression, and blood pressure. Pets also help increase exercise and physical activity, and provide a renewed sense of purpose.


Their unconditional love and acceptance and lack of judgement means a lot especially to a veteran who may be lonely or suffering from PTSD.

We:

 

  • Run a home delivery pet pantry for veterans whose income is less than 133% of poverty guidelines - initially Carter County only

  • Negotiate discounts for our program participants with businesses that provide pet services

  • Assist in finding and applying for grants when needed for pet related expenses

  • Use donations to fund our pet pantry

  • Are looking for additional donations to start a medical fund

PARTICIPANT BENEFITS:

>  Pet pantry for low income Carter County veterans - monthly home delivery of dog or cat food.

>  Discounts for program participants are available from: 

  • PetSense, Elizabethton

  • Big Johns Closeout
