New Program Heals Vets and Saves Pets

Collier County Veteran Services and Domestic Animal Services (DAS) are teaming up to support veterans and give shelter pets a second chance with the creation of Operation Welcome Home: Shelter Pets for Vets. The program is dedicated to supporting veterans and providing a second chance for shelter pets by rescuing, training and pairing them with America’s veterans who could benefit from a companion animal at no cost.

If a successful match is made, the pet will receive the appropriate training and begin its new life serving a deserving U.S. veteran. For more information, call Daniel Christenbury, Public Information Coordinator, at (239) 252-6956.
