About Dogs On Deployment

Dogs on Deployment is dedicated to supporting America's Heroes by connecting them with caring volunteers who are willing to provide temporary boarding for their beloved pets. They understand that military members may have service commitments that make it difficult for them to care for their furry friends and their mission is to ensure that these heroes have the peace of mind they deserve, knowing that their pets are in good hands while they serve their country.

Created by a compassionate couple, Shawn and Alisa Johnson, who are both veterans, Dogs On Deployment was founded in 2011. Drawing on their own experiences as a dual-military family, they recognized the need for a program like this and Dogs On Deployment was born.

Who Dogs On Deployment Serves

Dogs on Deployment provides services to all branches of the military and their families, including active duty, National Guard, and Reserve components. So they can have a piece of mind that their pets are well cared for while they are deployed.

How Fetch The Sun Supports Dogs On Deployment

At Fetch The Sun, we are passionate about supporting the mission of Dogs On Deployment. As a veteran owned company, this cause is very close to our hearts. We have proudly contributed to this amazing organization through monetary donations from our apparel sales. Additionally, we have created Dogs On Deployment themed matching dog and owner shirts for their annual fund raiser.

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.

Matching Dog and Owner Shirt Collaboration

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.
