Dogs On Deployment
When I created Zero Bark 30®, my mission was to support our brave service men and women in impactful ways. Beyond our unique line of military-inspired collars and leashes, I wanted to help support a nonprofit, military-related cause—and found the perfect partner in Dogs on Deployment.
I was inspired by a problem my good friend MSgt John "OB" Oberhuber had dealt with, one that many military men and women can relate to. In December 2012, MSgt OB got a Bordeaux Mastiff puppy named Stuey—but soon after received orders for another deployment. He was unable to find someone to care for Stuey while he was serving overseas, so prior to leaving he was forced to give Stuey away, heartbroken.
Dogs on Deployment is a national 501(c)(3) non-profit providing a central network for military members to find volunteers willing to board their pets while they are deployed or have other service commitments, making them unable to temporarily care for their pets. No pet should ever be surrendered due to a military commitment.
A portion of every purchase from Zero Bark 30® is donated to Dogs on Deployment.
