Vets Need Pets 

The Dubuque Regional Humane Society (DRHS) is thrilled to introduce our “Vets Need Pets” program in partnership with the local Veteran’s Freedom Center. The program offers veterans $50 off a cat or dog adoption with their military ID. Pets provide numerous benefits to veterans including companionship, medical assistance, providing a sense of purpose and unconditional love. It is the hope of the DRHS that the “Vets Need Pets” program encourages local veterans to stop by the DRHS and see if one of our companion animals is the right fit for them.


"Many veterans return home from service with both visible and internal scars. We hope that by offering veterans an opportunity to bond with a companion animal they will find hope and healing,” said Noelle Chesney, Executive Director. “We are thrilled to be offering this special program to veterans and look forward to hearing stories of connection from our adopters!”
