Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet incorporated in the state of Arkansas on 28 January, 2005 after founders Linda Spurlin-Dominik and Carol Olmedo learned that military service members across the country had pets that needed a caring and safe home to care for them during the pet owner’s deployment or an unforeseen hardship situation, but had not been able to find someone to care for them. This left the deploying heroes or veterans with only one option, which was to legally surrender their pets and pet ownership rights to an animal shelter or rescue group never to see their pets again, know if they got a new good home, or ended up being euthanized.

We are not an animal shelter or rescue organization involved with re-homing of pets owned by the military community or a resource to assist shelters/rescues with re-homing situations involving military owned pets that have been legally surrendered to a specific shelter/rescue.
