Warrior Buddies

Bringing Unconditional Love to Our Nation's Heroes

The Warrior Buddies Military Family Adoption Program. The Prince William Humane Society believes that military families deserve the love and companionship only pets can provide. We offer military family adoptions at a discount for any homeless pet in the Prince William County Animal Shelter. 


As of Oct. 2020, Warrior Buddies Military Family Adoption Program has helped place 670 homeless pets, 441 dogs & 229 cats, from Prince William County Animal Shelter into loving homes at a cost of $13,400 in adoption fees. 

The Warrior Buddies, Wounded Heroes Adoption Program is designed to provide unconditional love and companionship to our Wounded Heroes in the form of trained shelter dogs. These specially chosen and evaluated dogs are provided to injured veterans and active military service members at no cost.

P.W. Humane Society works with professional trainers to find and evaluate potential "Buddies" for the program and then subsidizes the adoption process by paying adoption and microchip costs, wellness check and vaccines, and spay/neuter fees. The dogs are then transferred to the trainer to complete the training program and ultimately awarded to a wounded hero to provide a positive impact on their life.

Animals can do what drugs cannot by playing an active therapeutic role in a veterans' recovery, offering the sort of non-judgmental and unconditional love and support that these individuals need most.

According to Warrior Buddy, Anthony P. "I'd rather have a dog than a drug any day!"

This program is a community effort and one that is offered out of respect for the selfless sacrifice of our troops and our love for homeless pets in need of a forever home and someone to care for and love.

Your support to assure the success of this program is greatly needed and very much appreciated. Thank You!
