This looks like a really meaningful program that is just now being rolled out in Idaho.

The Meridian Valley Humane Society is joining forces with Pets for Patriots.

This is a connection that will link adult shelter pets with our country's loyal servicemen and women.

Individuals are eligible from any United States armed forces branch and at any stage of their careers – active, reserve, National Guard, retired or veteran.

It's free!

Once connected to the program, additional benefits for pets adopted through this program include reduced cost veterinary care and an annual gift card to help with expenses related to the care of the pet.

MVHS will help any veteran in the community in the Pets for Patriots program find a needs- and lifestyle-appropriate pet.

If you want to learn more or even enroll visit the Meridian Valley Humane Society website.
