Pet 66 Program
Partnering Shelter Pets With Veterans in Need
The Pets 66 program is the newest program to be developed within the Comanche County Pet Resource Foundation. We bring Veterans together with rescue dogs to help both Veterans and their pets recover from trauma. The dogs who come into our program are struggling with a traumatic life event, whether it's a physical injury or mental crisis.
We provide training and support for the dog, and then match the dog with a Veteran to continue the training and support that each need to move forward in life.
The Pet 66 program supports the matched pair throughout the life of the team, including training and veterinary care.
The Pet 66 program is funded by community donations and grants. There is no cost to our veterans for the life of the dog/Veteran team. Fees for this program will be waived for any US Veteran who meets ONE the following requirements.
Veterans shall present one of the following documents at the time of the placement interview:
Veteran identification card
State issued license with a veteran designation
Form DD214 military discharge certificate
Honorable discharge certificate
Letter from the US Military Center
Letter from the Department of Veterans Affairs Services and Benefits Program

Oliver was picked up by Cache Animal Control after he was hit by a car on Hwy 62. Oliver has a broken leg that will need to heal. Oliver is not having splints and casts on his leg, so we will be exploring other options for his healing process.
Oliver is always in a good mood! He smiles when anyone comes to visit him, even right after he was hit and in significant pain. He is the sweetest soul.
Oliver is new here and we are still exploring the best options for his broken leg. He will be ready for his training when his leg has been properly cared for.
