2021 Military Pet of the Year

Linda was Dogs on Deployment's 2021 Military Pet of the Year (MPOTY). Linda was rescued by Phil, an Air Force C-130 pilot. While operating near Plovdiv, Bulgaria, Phil saw Linda in the darkness. She was emaciated and soaking wet, and worst of all, she had a bullet wound in her leg that was growing infected. Knowing that they needed each other's help, Phil arranged for Linda to be taken to a vet and 30-days later, she was flown to Dallas where she would be taken to her forever home with Phil. Read more about Phil and Linda's story here.


In the Spring of 2021, Dogs on Deployment and Fetch the Sun collaborated to design, manufacture, and sell matching dog and owner apparel featuring Linda. Together, we created a bunch of radical dog lover apparel including t-shirts, long sleeve shirts, tank tops, hoodies, and dog shirts. For this project, Fetch the Sun donated all profits back to Dogs on Deployment.

Dogs on Deployment's Mission

Dogs on Deployment is a national non-profit 501(c)(3) providing services to all branches of the military and their families, including active duty, National Guard, and Reserve components. Their mission is to provide peace of mind to service members by facilitating the placement of their pets during their service commitments. As a veteran-owned company, Fetch the Sun loves this concept!
