Mission

The OPERATION Patriot Paws (OPP) mission is to transform loneliness into hope by empowering Veterans and rescue animals through the human-animal bond.

Vision

Our vision is to unite two legs with four and save lives.

Organization

OPERATION Patriot Paws (OPP) is an IRS 501(c)(3) not for profit charitable organization. We are a volunteer based organization established in November 2018. Our team is comprised of Veterans, mental health professionals, veterinarians, trainers, fosters, transporters, animal advocates, and more.

The majority of OPP’s animals come from high kill shelters. Instead of a life of abandonment or euthanasia, we rescue, foster, and provide veterinary care and training. Every animal is in the care of dedicated fosters and lives in a home with families, kids, or other companion animals while decompressing from shelter life. OPP supports those who have supported us by uniting these animals with Veterans. Humans and pets share a mutually beneficial connection. This relationship improves the health and well-being of both, changing and saving lives.

OPP is 100% donation funded.  Every dollar is put back into the organization to save lives.
