Nov. 11 is Veterans Day and LifeLine Animal Project in Avondale Estates decided to do more than simply wave the American flag.
The non-profit wants to be a friend by offering a friend to the men and women of the armed services. A furry friend, to be exact, from their Dog House or Kitty Motel, where they rescue and rehabilitate homeless pets.
Figuring that the loyalty of a pet and the loyalty of America’s military deserved to come together in some way, LifeLine is dubbing November as “Pets For Vets Month” at their no-kill shelter and will waive all adoption fees for military personnel, past and present.
“We are all deeply grateful for the brave men and women who put themselves in harm’s way for our sake,” said Blythe Randolph, board chair for LifeLine.
