DOGS ON DEPLOYMENT

Kiwanis Club of Colorado Springs

Janet Wilson spoke to our club on Wednesday about the great work she does to support our local military.  Janet works a program called Dogs on Deployment.  The program is a national 501(c)(3) non-profit providing a central network for military members to find volunteers willing to board their pets while they are deployed or have other service commitments, making them unable to temporarily care for their pets.  No pets should ever be surrendered to a shelter due to a military commitment.  Dogs on Deployment exists to help military members keep their pets by alleviating the need for pet relinquishment from millitary members due to the hardships of deployments.  Janet shared a personal and heart-warming story about boarding a dog and the joyous return of the soldier.  Thank you, Janet for helping some of our deployed service members and their dogs.
