Love Our Pets & Vets
4335 Van Nuys Blvd #193 Sherman Oaks, CA 91403

We are a nonprofit 501c3 that operates through the generosity of donors throughout our community!

Our mission is to connect dogs & cats from local shelters and rescues with our military veterans diagnosed with PTSD, Anxiety, and Depression, aiming to find them loving homes. By rescuing these animals, we aspire to bring comfort and healing to both our veterans and the animals who deserve a second chance at life. We hope to rescue one to help heal another.


Helping vets afford their pets

Our Vision Mission Is Focused On Helping Vets Afford Their Pets This program is here to help with medical bills, vaccinations, food and other needs if the veteran is unable to provide for them.

What a pet can do :

  • Ease Loneliness

  • Gain a New Perspective

  • Improve Relationships

  • Strengthen Social Connections

  • Increase Mental Well-Being

  • Enhance Emotional Health

  • Overcome Trauma

  • Boost Confidence

  • Sense when you’re down & be there for you

  • Keeping a Person Active With Play & Walks

We learn about the veterans personality, wants & needs and lifestyle. This helps us to help find the right animal for his/her situation.

Therapy Dogs

Therapy dogs and their handlers provide a service to others.  There are regional and national organizations that test, certify, and register therapy dogs and their handlers.  Once certified, they are allowed in hospitals, nursing homes, schools, airports (not airplanes), etc to provide comforting services to others.  They do not have special access to businesses, restaurants, etc.

Companion Dogs

These dogs provide emotional support and companionship to their owners.  These dogs have no special privileges.

Emotional Support Dogs

Like Companion Dogs, these dogs provide emotional support and companionship to their owners.  If the owner has a letter from a health care professional describing a need for such a dog, then the dog can become an Emotional Support Dog as long as the following are met.  The letter has to be on the health care professional’s letterhead and must be updated yearly.  The dog must be trained to behave in public with both people and other dogs.  If these requirements are met, then it is allowed to live in housing that does not normally allow dogs, and it can fly in the cabin on airplanes as long as it meets the requirements of Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA).  Like Therapy Dogs, they do not have special access to businesses, restaurants, etc.

Therapy cats

Often therapy cats are relied on for emotional support, to provide comfort to those dealing with disabilities, disorders or who are in particular need of companion support, cats are beneficial for reducing stress, anxiety, and depression. They can also encourage those they care for to increase their exercise, through play, walks or other means.

Please note – we DO NOT match pets for:

  • Service Dogs
  • Search and Rescue Dogs
  • Psychiatric – Service Dogs

These are not trained service animals
Our pets provide companionship and support, reduce stress and provide a sense of purpose to their human companions, Although many of our dogs do have obedience training for a smooth transition into your household
