In Fremont there is the Sandusky County Dog Kennel which initiating the Alpha Project, and allows you to sponsor the adoption of a dog for a veteran.
If a veteran is interested in adopting a dog, they can come to the kennel and look at which one would be a great fit for them. If there isn’t a dog available at the time, they can keep coming back until they find one that works well with their needs.
In order to take advantage of the sponsorship, the veteran should bring a recent copy of their DD214 some form of valid ID such as a driver’s license. The sponsorship is for veterans only, and won’t be used for other purposes.
Besides being able to select a pet from the kennel, the sponsorship also includes a 4-in-1 vaccine, spay/neuter, rabies vaccine, deworming, heartworm test and a dog license for the current year.
The kennel wants people to know that this isn’t a freebie. It’s something they’ve put together in order to thank veterans for their services. In putting up the cost of adoption, you’re providing a veteran with a gift that will last them for many years.
The adoption cost is $115. It should be noted that the dogs aren’t service dogs.
There is both an online and a printable version of the veteran sponsorship form. They need to be filled out prior to donating money.
