Hey Schweinfurt, this is CPT Andrew Schrader of the Schweinfurt Veterinary Treatment Facility. At the vet clinic we are committed to prevent the abandonment of pets in the local community. The garrison here is scheduled to close by the fall of 2014. Hundreds of Soldiers and families—many of whom are pet owners—will PCS to their next duty station by the summer of 2014.
We’re taking steps now to make sure pets aren’t left behind. Pets are our family members and we aim to assist outbound Soldiers and families with either getting their pets safely to their next duty station or facilitating the adoption of the pet. Leaving a pet stranded on its own is not an option.
Here’s the bottom line up front: We need your help.
- If you, or someone you know, is PCSing with a pet, contact the vet clinic. We will ensure the pet has the vaccinations and paperwork it needs to safely and legally leave the country.
- If you, or someone you know, needs help finding someone to adopt a pet, contact the vet clinic. We’ll help find an owner.
To make sure our pets have a safe home after the garrison here closes, we’ve created a Pet Adoption page. The page is regularly updated. We’ll update photos and POC information for pets in need of care. And if you’d like to post information on a pet that needs an owner, contact the vet clinic at DSN 353-8359, CIV 09721-96-8359.
Schweinfurt, let’s all make sure these furry creatures find a home they deserve.
