A great way to help Service people with their Pets: Dogs On Deployment

I came across this organization that helps provide Foster Homes to dogs and cats owned by our servicemen and women (whenever they have to on tour). This is a great way to help them keep their beloved pets, as long as people open their homes to temporarily foster during that length of duty.  This is also a great way to help our Armed Forces. - Rob

*I am willing to foster a military member's pet while they're on deployment
*I am a business person that supports the military and want to help

Dogs On Deployment:
Military members nation-wide confront a multitude of problems during their career. The last problem they want to worry about is what to do with their beloved family pet when it's time for them to deploy. Many service members have limited, to no options for their pets when they have to go overseas and many have relinquished their pets to shelters when they have nowhere else to go. Dogs On Deployment is a 501(c)(3) national non-profit which provides a central online database for service members to search for individuals or families who are willing to welcome a Dog On Deployment into their home for the length of their owner's deployment.  WEBSITE:   http://www.dogsondeployment.org/index.php   

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
