Foster Homes Needed: Minnesota

The National Chapter of Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet just acquired the MN foster home program since the MN chapter has dissolved.  We are seeking foster homes in Minnesota. If interested, please submit foster home required information by visiting our website.  Please note that activity in MN is slow, so we may only need one or two volunteers immediately, but we will add your information to our records for future consideration.

Once your application is received, a state volunteer will provide more detail about the specific needs in your area.

Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet Announces Dissolution of Affiliated Minnesota Chapter 32

Gatesville, TX, April 1, 2014 – Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet© announces that as of April 1, 2014, their affiliated Minnesota Chapter 32 has filed an intent to “dissolve the chapter” documentation with the MN State Attorney General and will no longer be conducting business in the state.

Due to lack of military activity in the state and support volunteer resources in the state, the MN Chapter 32 Board of Directors voted to start the process to dissolve the chapter. The administration of the foster home program is being transitioned backed to Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet’s National Office with the Central Region Director, Heather O’Brien, handling the day-to-day coordination efforts of the program.
