Dear DoD Supporter, Thank y…
Dear DoD Supporter,

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making a donation to Dogs on Deployment. In 2011, when both myself and my husband had military commitments that would prevent us from caring for our beloved miniature Australian Shepherd, JD, we were in a panic as to what we were going to do. We were lucky that a distant relative stepped up to help, but that fear of the unknown inspired us to found the largest foster network to connect service members with volunteers willing to board their pets. In just five years, we have grown from a team of two (my husband and I), to a team of over 30,000 amazing volunteers, DoD Boarders and supporters through our network. I never dreamed it would have been possible to reach this point.

As we celebrate our fifth anniversary, and compete for the third time in the Veterans Charity Challenge on Crowdrise, I'd like to share with you what it means to me to support this cause. We are a grass roots organization. We pay no salaries. We help not only active duty military members, but their families, and their pets. We go beyond just pet fostering, and offer financial assistance. We are the only organization successfully doing what we're doing. We're the last line of defense against a companion animal ending up in a shelter due to a service commitment. We are a team, a family and a proud group of individual volunteers, many of whom are active duty, veteran or military family members themselves.

Please continue to support Dogs on Deployment, and push for our success this year. We have a goal to raise $30,000. This is our only fundraising campaign of the year. You can support by joining our team by clicking on Fundraise for this Campaign at www.bit.ly/dod-vcc4. Your support makes a world of difference for so many.

Thank you again for your generosity and your kindness.

Sincerely,

Alisa Johnson
