Dogs on Deployment Rescue Connection

Dear Rescuer,

My name is Alisa Johnson (alisa@dogsondeployment.org), and I am the President of Dogs on Deployment. Dogs on Deployment is a non-profit which promotes responsible pet-ownership and the military-pet community by providing an online resource for military members to search for volunteers willing to board their pets during deployments, training or hardships. Since our launch in June 2011, we have helped nearly 80 military pets find loving homes in their owner’s absence and have a network of nearly 600 boarders located across the country. We also have resources available for moving military families in country and overseas. We rely solely on the public’s support to improve the service we can offer to military members nationwide. We have a very active Facebook page we hope you’ll like and share.

I am writing you in order to let you know that we exist; so if you ever hear of a military pet in need, you know where to send them. Often times pets are the casualties to fallen through pet care plans before deployments, and end up needlessly in shelters. We hope that if you ever hear of a military member requesting to relinquish their pet due to the service requirements, you refer them to us first. If you ever adopt a pet to a military family, please educate them of our program in case they need to utilize us in the future.

Military members can be wonderful pet owners, but unfortunately there is a lack of support for pet owners within the military. We’re here to provide that.

We have an informational flyer that you can print for your community wall, or pass out to military families adopting from you. Also, if you have a resource page on your website, please consider adding a resource specifically geared for military members. We would love for our page to be mentioned and linked to for help during deployments.

If your organization is interested in joining our foster network to provide temporary homes for military pets, please respond to this email. We are hoping to network with several rescues across the nation to expand our military foster network, as well as be connected with breed specific rescues for when we have pure-breds posted on our website.

We also hope that you might be interested in supporting our national petition to standardize military pet policies on base housing, securing the rights of pet owners to own their pets, regardless of breed or size, on base and have the confidence that no matter where they go, the policy will be the same. We have a Facebook page for our petition and are requesting our Change.org petition be shared in order to help us receive 100,000 signatures.

Thank you considering supporting Dogs on Deployment, your troops and their pets.

Sincerely,
Alisa Johnson
President, Dogs on Deployment
 

Gone fishing

Gone fishing — at least figuratively.

 

Transport coordinators – help needed

22 Jun

Coordinators, we need a little help finding a rescue for Tara.

We need a foster home or a good no-kill shelter or an adoptive home up north for this black lab girl, who really deserves a shot at a good life.

Tara is only 8 months old and she will be spayed before being transported. She was pulled as a stray several months ago from an animal control center in Tennessee, where she faced certain death.

She is currently living with a rescuer who cannot keep her. She is really good with people. She may have a food aggression issue with other dogs, but lots of strays have that.

I volunteer to drive the first leg if we can get her on a transport to safety.

Please contact Beth at Underdog Railroad

Need a new friend?

19 Jun

Consider adopting this guy:

Beetle

Breed: Great Pyrenees/Beagle Mix Color: White – With Black Age: Young
Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg) Sex: Male ID#: 3223577

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.


Please contact Kerry (kerry@thalppc.com) at the Pet Placement Center in Chattanooga, TN for more information about this pet.

Beetle’s Story … Beetle is 70 pounds of handsome and gentle.  We think he is a Great Pyrenees and Beagle mix.  His disposition is much like that of a Labrador Retriever.  He is happy with the company of other dogs and great with people.  He loves to be rewarded with treats and takes them from your hand with the softest touch of his mouth.

Beetle was rescued as a puppy from Cleveland Animal Control in February 2011.  He was a tiny, adorable black and white cuddle bug and was adopted from Pet Placement Center quickly.  Beetle’s people returned him to PPC in late January 2012 because their living situation was not best for Beetle.  He is housebroken, good on a leash, and has the intellect to learn basic commands.  His ideal home will provide opportunities for him to take his person for walks or run in a safe yard.  Beetle was born December 2010.

We’re open Wednesday – Saturday 10 am – 5 pm and Sundays 12 – 5 pm.

The adoption fee is $90 which includes a free veterinary exam within 2 weeks of adoption, up to date vaccinations, tests for heartworms, heartworm medication, FELV/FIV test, deworming, flea treatment, microchip, and spay or neuter.

If you are interested in this pet,

If you have any questions, feel free to email me at kerry@thalppc.com. THANKS!
