He completed the family and is something that we didn’t even know we were missing before. We couldn’t even think of our lives without him at this point. We’re so appreciative of this program.

Pets for Vets Beneficiary

A Program Fund grant supports the Cedar Valley Humane Society’s Pets for Vets program. This program covers the cost of pet adoption and immediate supplies for veterans.

Elizabeth Ard and her husband, both veterans, had been looking into adding a dog to their family for some time, but had been dissuaded by the upfront costs associated with adding a new family member. After hearing about the Pets for Vets program, Elizabeth and her children visited the Cedar Valley Humane Society, and immediately fell in love with Duke.
