Adoptable Dogs

Adoptable Dogs:

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 a therapy or service dog. If you are a Veteran who does not require a trained dog to help with symptoms related to PTSD, but just need a dog that you can take on walks, goes fishing with you 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 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 Veterans Initial Application form found at http://petsloyal2vets.org/companions/veterans-initial-application/ to be considered. 

Currently, we have one such dog that is available named Liberty who is available now.
