About Us

Pets for Vets Wisconsin is the Wisconsin chapter of the non-profit organization, Pets for Vets, Inc. We match rescued animals with Veterans who would benefit from having a companion pet. We select and train animals to match the Veteran's personality and lifestyle and get them started with equipment and veterinary care, including but not limited to spaying/neutering, vaccinations, and grooming. This is all free of charge to the Veteran.

Our animals are all selected from kill-shelters because we believe in saving a life with every match. We do not have any breed restrictions. There is a thorough evaluation done on each dog before we take him or her from the shelter.

Our chapter was formed in October, 2012. We are pending 501(c)(3) approval. We serve Veterans statewide.


Since our first match (between Buddy and Bill) was completed, we've been mentioned by WKOW news, the Wisconsin State Journal (see the 'Companion Animals' section at the end of the article), and WISC-TV. We've collected videos of the interviews on the stories page.
