Our Story

Adopt-A-Vet started in 2014 as we were worried there were veterans in our community living in long term care facilities, that have outlived their families, and are now left in solitude during the holidays.  Adopt-A-Vet founders decided something needed to be done. That Christmas they threw in some money which was used to get some gifts and stockings for veterans at one of the local nursing homes. Seeing the smiles on their faces, and the gratitude they had, there was no doubt in any of our minds that this was something that needed to be done all the time.

 In 2015, we asked some of our friends on social media if they would like to help.  With their support, it allowed us to once again to visit some vets bringing them smiles which they certainly have earned.

     In 2016, we were able to not only raise enough money to run the event for the veterans, but also raised enough to establish ourselves as a federally recognized non-profit organization. By doing this, We hope to raise more money, allowing us to have events though the year for the veterans, as well as an annual Christmas event.

     During the pandemic in 2021 we started looking at expanding our organization to other communities a cross Canada as we want to help as many veterans as possible.  Please keep an eye open to the new locations opening across the country and know anyone that has supported this cause has been a part of helping veterans across the country   

Our Mission

Adopt-A-Vet’s missions are:

1. Ensure all veterans do not feel left alone and un-appreciated, especially over the holidays. We realized that this was an issue where some veterans were left in solidtude after having outlived their families. Adopt-A-Vet brings them gifts, as well as spends time sharing stories and camaraderie that all of us long for having served in the Candian Armed Forces at one point in our lives.

2. Ensure stories of local heroes do not fall forgotten by the new generation. Adopt-A-Vet plans on doing this by establishing a partnership with the Safety Village of Windsor, to build a small interactive armory where veterans can interact with the youth and adults that visit the facility. Adopt-A-Vet will also make a video to play inside the building allowing people to hear stories told by our local veteran’s. 

Never forgotten in life……or in death.
