Pets for U.S. Heroes offers the support, companionship and therapeutic benefits provided by the adoption of homeless dogs and cats to veterans, law enforcement officers, firefighters, paramedics, first responders and others working in high stress occupations. The organization’s vision is twofold: 1) Offer the beneficial qualities of adopted companion animals to those in strenuous occupations. 2) Reduce the number of homeless animals by providing loving homes. The charity expects to better their quality of life and provide permanent homes. Pets for U.S. Heroes aims to improve the adopters overall mental and physical health and demonstrate a reduction in stress levels. The outcome will provide a higher quality of life, allowing robust social and familial relations, improved work performance and the ability to participate as active community members.
