Pets for Patriots Partnership

Potter League for Animals has partnered with a national nonprofit, “Pets for Patriots,” to help U.S. military veterans adopt the pet of their dreams.

Pets for Patriots aims to get harder-to-adopt pets out of shelters while offering free memberships to U.S. veterans and incentives to help them care for their new pet. The organization has a network of shelters that their members can use to find their perfect pet, and they pre-screen members before they visit shelters to make sure they’ll be good pet parents.

Every Pets for Patriots member who adopts an eligible shelter pet receives the following:

  • 25% Adoption Fee Discount
  • 50% off dog training classes, playgroups, private sessions
  • Ongoing discounted veterinary care through partner vets
  • Post-adoption follow up calls for a minimum of six months.

Adoption Fee Includes:

  • Basic veterinary exam
  • Behavior assessment
  • Age-appropriate vaccinations
  • Flea/tick preventative
  • Heartworm preventative
  • Heartworm test
  • Microchip for permanent identification
  • Pet ID tag and registration
  • Pet food
  • Spay/neuter
  • Discounted dog training, free month of crate rental, 30 days of free pet insurance.

To be eligible for a Pets for Patriots adoption, a shelter pet must meet only one of the following criteria:

  • Be at least two years old
  • Have a special need such as a disability/medical condition
  • Weigh more than 40 lbs. at time of adoption
  • Dog or cat homeless for 6 months or more
