Thank You For Your Service! 


Military Veterans Program (MVP)

Anderson Humane recognizes the sacrifice made by those in the military. That is why we created our Military Veterans Program (MVP) to support the mutually beneficial relationship and positive benefits that come from a connection between animals and veterans. The MVP is run by veterans, for veterans. It allows veterans to connect with animals in unique ways including training programs, fostering, and through reduced adoption fees. We also have an Active Duty Foster Program to provide foster care for the pets of active duty military while they are deployed.

A Renewed Purpose to Serve:

  • Volunteer in our dog care/cat care programs

  • Help other veterans with their pet-related needs through the MVP Constant Companions Program

  • Foster an animal who needs a temporary home

  • Host a fundraising drive

  • Host or participate in a shelter outreach event

  • Lead a maintenance or office assistance project


Active Duty Foster Program

Military life can be a challenge for pet owners. When activated, some members of the military have nowhere for their beloved pets to go during their deployment. Through the Active Duty Foster Program, veterans provide foster care for the pets of active duty military for the term of their deployment. Pets enrolled in this program receive free veterinary care through Anderson’s veterinary clinic, free food, and supplies, as well as behavioral advice and support – all at no cost to the MVP participant. 

All Military Active Duty, Active Reserve, National Guard, Retirees, and Honorably Discharged Veterans always receive 50% off of their adoption fee.
