Pets for Patriots

Pets for Patriots in a national nonprofit that saves the lives of person and pet through companion pet adoption for United States military veterans. Working with Pets for Patriots, our shelter gives local veterans, active duty military members and their families the gift of unconditional love while providing the most overlooked dogs and cats a second chance at life.

Individuals are welcome from all United States military branches and at any stage of their careers. Eligible pets must meet one of three criteria: dog or cat two years or older or with special needs, or dogs over 40 pounds.

Individuals must first apply through Pets for Patriots and provide relevant eligibility documents. Approval typically takes no more than two business days. Joining Pets for Patriots is entirely free to veterans, and our shelter offers half-price adoption fees. In addition, the adopter will receive a $150 gift card upon proof of eligible adoption to help with food and other essentials. They will also receive a 10% discount on veterinary services through Pasquotank Animal Hospital, as well as pre-and post-adoption counseling.
