Join Dogs on Deployment for the first annual Inland Empire Motorcycle Charity Ride benefiting Dogs on Deployment. Dogs on Deployment is a national non-profit whose mission is to give military members peace of mind concerning their pets during their service commitments by providing them with the ability to find people and resources able to help them. The organization, founded by a Marine and Navy husband and wife team from San Diego, provides the largest foster network to help military members find volunteers willing to board their pets during their service commitments, as well as provide financial grants to at-need military families for help with their pet's care during emergencies. To date, Dogs on Deployment has assisted nearly 1,000 military pets and provided over $225,000 in financial aid!
