Founded in 2009, Pets for Patriots, Inc. is the inspiration of Beth Zimmerman. Through Pets for Patriots, the most vulnerable shelter pets are given a second chance at life while enhancing the lives of our veterans and service personnel. This very special organization saves at-risk dogs and cats and places them in the loving homes of those who serve and have served our country.
We had the great pleasure of interviewing Beth Zimmerman, Founder, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of Pets for Patriots, a conversation we’re honored to share with our PackPeople audience. Among the topics discussed are her motivation for starting Pets for Patriots, how they reach out to military staff, how shelters and veterinarians can get involved, and issues encountered in the military community (such as stress) that have been served well by adopting an animal.
