We are very proud of the programs
that our group conceived of and shared within our community.
UPDATE: Our latest Pets For Veterans campaign resulted in the adoptions of 10 dogs and 3 cats from the Jackson County Animal Shelter. Please go to our "photo" section (it may take a little time to load up all the photos) and view the slide show which features some of our Pets For Veterans participants and their new, furry family members.
Our organization came up with a plan which would reunite lost dogs with their owners while saving valuable time for our police officers.
- Thanks to our plan and the cooperation of the Jackson County Treasurers Office, the County computer programmers and the Jackson County
Friends has offered our "Pets For Veterans" program seven times in the past few years where we have paid for the adoption fees of one dog or up to two cats (at the Jackson County Animal Shelter) for a local veteran during our designated dates. As of 2016, qualified veterans have adopted 57 dogs and 31 cats and taken them to their loving, permanent homes. (Some of our veterans and their new best friends are featured in our photo section. If you would like to view them please click on the "photo" button above.) We are grateful for their service to our country and we also thank our supporters who have helped to finance this program with their donations. If you would like to help us continue this valuable program, please consider a monetary donation to Friends. You can find our address by clicking on to the "Contact" section above, or sending a donation by clicking onto a "Donate" button located within several different pages of this website.
All donations to our organization are tax deductible. Thank you!
