Bringing Unconditional Love to Our Nation's Heroes
The Prince William Humane Society (PWHS) Warrior Buddies Program is designed to improve the morale and welfare of our veterans and their families by bringing them unconditional love and companionship in the form of adoptable shelter pets. This program has two separate components to help us accomplish this goal.
The Wounded Heroes Free Adoption Program works with wounded service members whose case workers feel that a service/assistance dog would be of benefit in their therapy and recovery. The clinic case worker refers the service member to our program and after an interview process, our trainers screen the dogs at local shelters to find the perfect service/assistance dog. Our professional dog trainers work exclusively with the team training the dog to the specific needs of the individual - assuring a cohesive bond between the two. The adoptions are free to qualified participants and include the adoption fee, spay/neuter, all vaccinations, a wellness check, a microchip and training.
This program has proven to be a mutually beneficial one. Our nation’s heroes are provided with a loving companion for healing, but they in turn give our animals what they need most in the world: a home where they will be appreciated for who they are and finally receive the love they so deserve.
The second component of the Program is the Warrior Buddies Military Family Adoption Program. The Prince William Humane Society believes that military families also deserve the love and companionship only pets can provide. So we offer military family adoptions at a discount for any homeless pet in the Prince William County Animal Shelter.
Both of these programs are available due to a generous community whose donations and efforts are offered out of love and respect for our troops and our homeless pets looking for a forever home and someone to share their love!
We are thrilled to report that as of December 2018, we have placed
525 homeless pets and 22 service dog teams!

Thank you for making a difference in the lives of countless pets. Without your donations, gifts and support this wouldn't be possible.
