Since 2005 when we began, we have rescued over 40 cats, and 20 dogs including babies, 6 baby squirrels, 2 bunnies, and fish. We have adopted out all of them. We use the ones in our care in our programs with Veterans. We have completed 21 Home Repair Projects, We have assisted over 100 Veterans with their education, jobs, starting their own companies, and mentoring them.
We created our 1st company in 2008 and split into separate entities in 2011 and incorporated them both.
Veteran Rescue programs are here to assist you. We offer several services to assist both Veterans, their families and in pairing them with animals who may also need a helping hand.
New Location in Mount Vernon, KY
Veteran Rescue will still be operating some programs in Florida such as Home Repair, helping Veterans start businesses, mentoring, educational requests, while the things requiring in person assistance such as animal surrender will be in KY as will the retreats. We will also be operating in Virginia with the same programs as Florida.

Retreats for Veterans with PTSD
Sometimes, we just need to get away from everything. Retreats for Veterans are projected to be available starting in the summer of 2014. Keep up with Veteran Rescue for the latest news!
Man’s best friend sometimes needs a helping hand sometimes. We provide rescues within the limits of availability within our household. Rescued animals are often spayed and neutered as needed, socialized, trained and adopted out. We train the rescues that are appropriate for Service Dogs for PTSD only. We will also adopt WMD that fail/retire from Gov entities.
Other programs are offered but are not our focus such as Home Repair Projects, Helping Veterans start their own companies, Educational assistance, and more. Be sure to check back on this page, as Veteran Rescue programs are often changing and being updated.
