About the Pets for Patriots program

pets for pats

Pets for Patriots creates unique opportunities for members of the military community to save a life by honorably adopting homeless adult dogs and cats.

Pets for Patriots and RCHS support member Patriot adoptions of adult shelter pets, large dogs and special needs animals – those most in need of a loving, forever home – from Rancho Coastal Humane Society. To ease the financial costs associated with pet ownership, the program has a partnership with veterinarians to deliver a minimum 10% discount for the life of the adopted pet’s care. Pets for Patriots provides access to additional cost reductions for pet basics, such as food, toys and essential supplies.

Rancho Coastal Humane Society and Pets for Patriots are determined to make the joys of adult pet ownership achievable and affordable for the men and women of the U.S. military.

Our goal is to make the benefits of shelter pet adoption a reality for military personnel, ensuring many years of friendship, companionship and joy with their honorably adopted dog or cat.
