When the brave men and women of our armed forces get deployed, their pets cannot come with them. These servicemembers don't always have a family member or friend who is able to care for their pets.
Some organizations have sprung up to help match such pets with foster families. Foster families keep these pets from being permanently separated from their owners.
We're aware of the following nonprofits and, as far as we've learned thus far, have no reason not to recommend them. Your input is, of course, highly valuable. (The links appear in the order in which we learned of them, and no other meaning should be read into their relative placement on this page.)
