There's no doubt that the deployed military men and women are heroes. Not only do they sometimes have to leave human children behind, they also must say goodbye to their beloved pets. This is where another kind of hero steps in. The volunteers who work for Dogs on Deployment foster and lovingly care for pets until their humans return from duty.
Even though the name of the nonprofit organization is Dogs on Deployment, the volunteers welcome pets of all kinds into their homes. Military men and women have enough concerns while they're away -- it's a relief to know their pets are in comfortable, loving homes.
I love this video. After a six-month deployment, a soldier is reunited with two very special dogs, and a gorgeous tuxedo cat.
Purina is teaming up with Dogs on Deployment to raise awareness of the need to foster and care for pets of deployed men and women. And guess what? You can make a difference, right there from your computer!
