We have been busy helping our Veterans and their Pets in 2013. As we head into 2014 can you help us help them? Most of our veterans need temporary housing for their animals and vetrinary care. This amounts to about $350 per animal. In 2013 we have assisted many veterans in conjunction with the VA and VA housing system. Most reciently (October 2013) we assisted five families by caring for their animals while they got on their feet and into a home. All of them except one are now home for the holidays.
Please see our Volunteer page as our Veterans need you! WE NEED FOSTERS! Fostering is a 30 to 90 day commitment. Help a Veteran get the medical treatment they need knowing their animals are cared for.
BILLY: We have spent the last many months helping our Veterans. Billy and Copper not only got off the street (they were homeless) but they together completed a half way house reeducation program and now have their own home. Thanks to the VA, Cross Roads and Veterans and Their PetsSM Billy is now very happy and has is service dog Copper with him all the time.
Gary: Gary and Libby now have moved into a bigger place with a friend. Gary has added Hamilton (a special needs Chihuahua mix) to his pack. He has paid off his truck and is well on the road to self sufficiency. See the video (click here) to understand how Gary has come from homeless to being hit by a car and now if on his feet thanks to the VA and Veterans and Their PetsSM.
Hope and Princess are looking for homes!! They are a Veterans pets that now need new homes. We have been helping Steve with his 4 girls for 2 years. We provided vetrinary care, boarding and food to ensure they were safe. Sadly their loving dad Steve lost his battle and passed in November 2013. One of the 4 girls he loved so much, Sophia Maria, died 2 days after this picture below was taken and just a few weeks after Steve. She and Steve will be laid to rest together. Help us get Hope and Princess into new loving homes.
Veterans and Their PetsSM has been very active and is currently helping multiple Veterans by fostering their animals while their mom or dad is in the VA hospital. We currently have more than 7 animals in out care looking for fosters. Each needs a foster for about 90 days. Currently they are in a kennel and would greatly appreciate a loving temporary home.
