HISTORY OF

DOGS ON

DEPLOYMENT

DoD’s Story

Dogs on Deployment was founded in 2011 by a dual military couple, Alisa and Shawn

Johnson, who serve in the US Marine

Corps and US Navy respectively. They owned a dog, JD, who they could not care for during their dual military commitments.

They found family to rely on, but recognized not all military families do.

They decided to help.

2014 DoD

Mascot, Midas

In 2014, Dogs on Deployment held its second-annual Military Pet of the

Year and Mascot Competition.

Sgt Juan Valdez, and his dog,

Midas, won by popular vote. Juan is a Marine combat-veteran, and

Midas is his PTS (Post-Traumatic

Stress) Service Dog.

Together, Dogs on Deployment and

Sgt Valdez are working towards raising awareness for the benefits of Service Dogs for veterans and increasing aid given to our returning troops through the 2014 campaign,

Midas Cares.

DoD’s Goals

DoD aims at having DoD Boarders located near all major military bases in the United States

DoD will become a first resource for military members to turn to when they need long term boarding for their pets

DoD plans to increase the rights and education that pet owners have while serving active duty in the military

DoD will help promote the military-pet community by providing a database of partnered pet related businesses which support their troops through discount and incentive programs

DoD helps qualified military members with the cost of pet care during emergencies, and/or before and during deployments in order to promote responsible pet-ownership, providing financial assistance to get military pets spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and help with cost of pet care. This is known as our Pet Chit Program.
