Rocketeer Charity: Pets For Vets

For our latest charity drawing, Bottle Rocket has selected the Pets for Vets Program – a group dedicated to supporting veterans by pairing them with rescued companion animals.

Rocketeer Laurie Irish-Duncan entered Pets for Vets into our bi-monthly charity drawing.

“By combining their needs, physical, psychological, and emotional, with rescuing a dog or cat who would most likely not be adopted from a shelter, matching the two and training them as companions, is such an all-around awesome win - what a great charity!” Duncan said.

Pets for Vets tackles two problems: veterans with mental health and post-combat trauma and the millions of cats and dogs euthanized annually. The program aims to train rescued animals and match them with returning veterans to provide friendship and therapy.
