Pets For Patriots

NO MORE VETERANS IN NEED, NO MORE HOMELESS PETS
Our vision is to end animal homelessness in the United States while giving our military veterans and their families the greatest “thank you” of all: the extraordinary love of a companion pet.

We can make this happen through our nationwide shelter and veterinary networks, military and veteran organizations, and a public that values the lives of both the most vulnerable and heroic among us.

OUR MISSION IS TO GIVE THE GIFTS OF FIDELITY, JOY AND LOVE TO BOTH VETERAN AND PET THROUGH COMPANION ANIMAL ADOPTION
Our mission is like no other because we are serving the men and women of the most extraordinary military of the most exceptional nation in the world. The ways we think, act and deliver are all in support of fulfilling our mission:

COLLABORATE WITH THE ANIMAL WELFARE COMMUNITY
Build a nationwide network of shelter/rescue and veterinary partners who share our values and vision

GIVE HOPE TO THE HOPELESS
Find loving homes for the most overlooked sheltered animals: adult, special needs, and long-term homeless pets, and large breed dogs

BE A LEADING VOICE FOR SHELTERED ANIMALS
Educate the military community and the public about the plight of animals surrendered to shelters, promoting companion pet adoption as the only humane and responsible alternative to buying or breeding animals

HELP VETERANS AFFORD A NEW PET FRIEND
Reduce the overall costs of pet guardianship to prevent veterans from returning their adopted pets to the shelter due to short-term financial hardship

SHARE OUR LOVE
Provide ongoing support – moral, educational, and financial – to nurture the healing bonds between veterans and their adopted companion pets

Air Force Association

The Air Force Association (AFA) is a non-profit, independent, professional military and aerospace education association promoting public understanding of aerospace power and the pivotal role it plays in the security of the nation.
The Air Force Association holds national symposiums, publishes Air Force Magazine, and disseminates information through outreach programs.
It sponsors professional development seminars and recognizes excellence in the education and aerospace fields through national awards programs. The Air Force Association presents scholarships and grants to Air Force active duty, Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve members and their dependents; and awards educator grants to promote science and math education at the elementary and secondary school level.

AFA’s heritage is rooted in the legacy of Billy Mitchell. Mitchell had seen the United States enter World War I as the eighth-ranked nation in airpower – exceeded by Bulgaria, Greece, and Japan as well as by the major powers. Despite the bitter lessons of the war in the air and the high priority other nations were giving to airpower, the U.S. Air Service in 1919 was reduced from 10,000 pilots to 149; 6,000 were discharged in nine days. Mitchell fought hard and long in support of the importance of airpower and the need for a strong national defense. His work was carried on by the men who believed and served with him.

One of these men was the commander of World War II Army Air Forces – General Henry H. “Hap” Arnold. In April 1945, General Arnold first mentioned the need for an independent civilian organization to argue the case for military preparedness and the importance of airpower. AFA was incorporated in the District of Columbia on February 4, 1946. The Association’s first national president was General Jimmy Doolittle, a noted aviation pioneer and Medal of Honor recipient. A vice president at Shell Oil Co. at the time, Doolittle took a year off to set up AFA chapters across the country.

Since then, AFA has spanned the air age, the missile era, the conquest of space, the nuclear age and the post-Cold War period. Although Association policies have evolved to meet changing technological and human demands, AFA has been constant in working to support Air Force people and strengthen American aerospace power to help maintain national security and preserve world peace.
