HISTORY OF DOGS ON DEPLOYMENT
SUPPORT YOUR TROOPS BY BOARDING THEIR PETS DoD’s Story Dogs on Deployment was founded in 2011 by a dual military couple, Alisa and Shawn Johnson, who serve in the US Marine Corps and US Navy respectively. They owned a dog, JD, who they could not care for during their dual military commitments. They found family to rely on, but recognized not all military families do. They decided to help.
