Military & Veteran Pet Adoption Program

ARF wants you! Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation salutes our all-star heroes with the Military & Veteran Pet Adoption Program (MVP). ARF gives back to brave active military and veterans by waiving adoption fees for all cats, dogs, puppies and kittens. Semper Fido!

The MVP Adoption Program victoriously saves lives by pairing homeless dogs and cats with our country’s heroes. Studies show interaction with companion animals lowers blood pressure, reduces anxiety, and improves physical and mental health. Closing ranks with veterans and rescued animals lets the animal be all he can be, while providing adopters a loving companion who will never go AWOL. The MVP Adoption Program deepens ARF’s commitment of working with veterans through our animal-assisted activity program, Pet Hug Pack, which has visited local veteran centers and hospitals for six years.

All active and retired military are invited to stop by ARF and check out our winning roster of potential best friends. Adopters must present Military ID card to be eligible; all standard adoption criteria apply.
