Honoring Our Heroes unites current and veteran members of the military, law enforcement, fire departments, and emergency services with a companion dog or cat at no cost. This program benefits both those who have served and shelter animals. A shelter animal receives a second chance at a happy home, and its adopters receive love and companionship. Together we are helping to end animal homelessness and enriching the lives of those who have protected us. We are grateful for our military and first responders and commend them for their service and commitment. Adopters will need to present proof of service at the time of adoption.

Honoring Our Heroes was a blessing to me. After all I had been through in the Army and the losses I endured, it was heartwarming to know somebody back home had come up with this program. All I wanted in the Army was a dog, but constant traveling didn’t allow me the time or place to do so. Having Shelby now has been amazing. We need our pets as much as they need us.” (Med Ret) Spc George Davis

All shelter animals will be vaccinated, spayed/neutered, microchipped, and wormed. Dogs will come with a county license.
