Do you not have any family members that you trust? No one is going to treat your dogs as well as you do, but someone on here may be able to help you.

Nope No family, Only person is my dad and he has 3 dogs already and last time i trusted him with my dog he got her prego.. I looked for kennels i cant find any. I will ship my dog anywhere but id like for it to be around central florida just so my wife can visit them. She cant take care of them because she is going to live with her parents and we tryed everything to get them to let them stay. This sux so bad... I know nobody will take care of them like i do but I hope a few thousand dollars for the year can encourage it. I have to leave by monday.. found out yesterday i have to leave in 6days so i dont have much time!!!

I don't understand how your inlaws can just say no to apart of your family, that being your dogs. Can't they go to Florida and be kept in a kennel on there property? It's bad enough you are being deployed to serve our country and now you are left to worry about your poor dogs fate. So sad.....I wish I lived closer to. I would help you out in a heartbeat! I hope you find some help :( I FOUND SOME WEBSITES for you! It's worth looking into it

I'd gladly help you but I am on the wrong side of the states for what you are looking for.

This might sound... crazy.. but I know the prisons near me will do things like this for people in need. The inmates care for and train the dogs while people are deployed, or their houses burn down. I saw this program first hand, and would recommend it, actually.

I'd help you out if I had enough room & didn't already have two dogs & cats. I feel bad, if it were just Lex I'd say yes in a heart beat. But Lily is really DA & territorial :( & if something (God forbid) happened to your dogs I couldn't forgive myself... plus I'm kinda far from Central FL.:(

Does the military have any options or suggestions on what to do. Could they possibly have a program to offer?

Since you'll be in Japan will you be living in Baracks? Could your wife perhaps stay in her own place with the dogs near her parents?

Wow, I didn't even know there was a single program like that, let alone two. That looks like good and useful info.

Hey everyone, thank everyone of you for your support and concern, it really does mean alot. I have contacted two people via pm on this site, i am keeping my fingers crossed, but so far no luck! If you guys think of anything else please let me know. I am now looking for anywhere in the states... If anyone knows of someone who is trusted, I can set up an allotment for payment for the care of my dogs, this means you get the payment amount every 2 weeks and the money gets taken out of my direct deposit before it even hit my bank account. Thanks for your support guys

So, short notice orders... That really sucks. I take it your wife can't/doesn't want to stay in housing while your gone? Can she not take care of the dogs herself the way you would? I'm sorry to ask these questions, but I'm curious. What branch, if you don't mind me asking? I really hope you can get the help you need in time before you have to ship out. Please keep us posted, and God Speed.

Thanks for your concern, My wife is moving back to FL with her parents and they dont want the dogs there because of their dog and the baby which is comming soon. She wants to live with her parents so she isnt alone. I am in the Marines and yes very short notice, they were suppose to get the orders extended but it got denyed and they told me at the last minute. it was suppose to be a done deal wasnt planning on leaving for another month.. I will keep you all posted thanks
