About Paws Abroad

Military members overseas have unique challenges when it comes to caring for their pet. The process of relocating your pet is challenging logistically and financially especially when foreign languages and cultures are involved. While stationed overseas, short and long deployments are commonplace and finding a loving caretaker for your pet can seem daunting.

Paws Abroad is an organization that strives to help military members overcome the cultural and lingual challenges of living overseas and help them find temporary homes for their pets while they fulfill their service commitments. It is an online network of local and military pet-lovers who want to ensure safe homes and promote responsible, life-long ownership. We would love for you to be a part of Paws Abroad’s mission through fostering, volunteering or donating.

Our mission is to help military members stationed overseas find a caring foster home for their beloved pet when they must fulfill their service commitments. Paws Abroad helps military members overcome the cultural and lingual challenges of living overseas by providing an avenue for them to connect with international volunteers over the shared love of animals.
