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
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!
