We have have a very busy summer. We have had an huge increase in request for support of veterans and their animals by the VA.
With the reform and federal focus on the Phoenix / AZ VA system Veterans are getting assistance. But many still are not seeking assistance because they will not leave/abandon their animals. We average about 6 animals in our care system for Veterans in a VA program. Each animal costs about $250 a month to care for in boarding / medical care.
Unfortunately several of the veterans have passed on in 2014 while we were caring for their animals. Others are not able to be self-sufficient post treatment and have not been able to reclaim their animals. Our animal rescue arm, Valley Dogs rescue, has taken their animals in will be finding new homes for them.
If you are interested in adopting any of the animals in our care please click HERE. Many great pups are waiting for their new home.
Our veterans and their families greatly appreciate your assistance to ensure their animals are safe while they get the care they need.
