There was a segment on TV about people who were being deployed overseas who need homes for their pets while they’re gone. I would like to find out how I get information on this program. My husband and I are retired and we are interested in helping out.
Not knowing the specific network or channel the segment aired on, The Informer can offer only general information.
The National Resource Directory, a government website for service members and veterans, lists the following groups, noted here with the site’s descriptions of each:
Dogs on Deployment, dogsondeployment.org — “Provides a central online database for Service Members to search for families, individuals and other non-profits who are willing to board their pets while they are deployed.”
Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet, guardianangelsforsoldierspet.org — “Foster home network and financial assistance to provide a caring, loving and safe home environment for Service Members’ and Veterans’ pets during deployment or an emergency hardship.”

Title: Fostering Miltary pets
Go to Google and do a search by entering "rescue groups that foster military pets" or maybe try "fostering military pets". I do rescue and I have seen these groups. They are few and far between however. A wonderful idea and hope you are able to locate one and help our military folks and their pets out.
