From time to time, Pets Loyal 2 Vets will have dogs available to adopt to Minnesota Veterans we call “Battle Buddies”. A “Battle Buddy” is a dog that is adoptable to a Minnesota Veteran as a family or personal pet and not as an emotional support or service dog. If you are a Veteran who does not require a trained service dog to help with symptoms related to PTSD, but just need a dog that you can take on walks, goes fishing with or is a just a playful family companion, then a “Battle Buddy” may be just what you need. If you live anywhere in Minnesota and seek a Battle Buddy companion, and are unable to pay the adoption fee, let us know.
Sometimes, these “Battle Buddy” partners are dogs we have trained but are not quite suitable to become a full service dog so we make them available to Minnesota Veterans free of charge. If you are interested in such a dog and want to be on our call list, you will need to first fill out the Battle Buddy Application form found at http://petsloyal2vets.org/battle-buddy-application/ to be considered. All you need to do is apply, then find a dog from your local dog rescue organization that you feel is a perfect fit for you or your immediate family and we will call you. Please do not purchase the dog first then apply. We need to be involved in the adoption process and ask many questions of the dog that may not be asked.
Currently, we have no dogs on site that are available so please apply and then search for a dog through your local dog rescue.
