DETROIT – The Michigan Humane Society (MHS), is teaming up with Pets for Patriots to give back to the men and women in uniform who inspire us all.

Service men and women interested in the program must first apply through Pets for Patriots, located online at, and provide proof of their military service. Joining Pets for Patriots is free to veterans and service members and approval typically takes one or two business days. Afterwards, the military member can visit any MHS location to receive expert assistance in choosing a new best friend as well as a significant discount on the adoption fee – up to 75 percent off – and a lifetime 10 percent discount on all veterinary care for their newly adopted companion.

Eligible adopters will have either served or are currently serving in any branch of the United States armed forces at any stage of their careers – active, reserve, National Guard, retired or veteran. Dogs or cats two years and older, dogs 40-pounds or larger regardless of age, and special needs dogs and cats will be made available for adoption through the program. MHS will help any veteran in the community in the Pets for Patriots program find a needs- and lifestyle-appropriate pet.
