Rescue Pets Serving Vets

Mission - “We are a nonprofit organization focused on rescuing shelter pets, abandoned pets, and special needs pets. We work on providing necessary medical care, training and love in our foster homes. Our ultimate goal is to home these pets with the right owner in either the general public or with veterans that need a special companion as a service or emotional support animal.”

Rescue Pets Serving Vets is honored to have some incredible volunteers organize a fundraising dog walk to support the founder, Casey Shonis, in her mission to save dogs and help place them in loving homes. Rescue Pets aims to rescue dogs from high kill shelters in other states, transport them to Pennsylvania, and adopt them out. They adopt to anyone looking for a dog, but adopt to veterans at no charge in hopes of helping veterans to find a companion dog, support dog, or a service dog.
