When you become a trainer with the Pets For Vets program through the Pittsburgh chapter at Animal Friends, you will work to identify and specially pair shelter pets with military veterans living with PTSD and TBI. You will then teach* the pets good manners to ensure they’ll fit in with the veteran’s lifestyle.
Because of you, the lives of veterans and homeless animals quite literally will be saved.
What a great way to give back to our nation’s veterans and find homes for shelter pets!
Pets for Vets-approved trainers at Animal Friends hold contracted positions with a generous stipend offered for their services.

*The training curriculum is identified by the Pets for Vets national standard.
