We are grateful for the establishment of a special fund that provides specific support to the Pets for Vets® program at Animal Friends. Major Benjamin Follansbee was an airborne Ranger who subsequently earned his coveted Special Forces tab and became a Green Beret. He served on multiple deployments in both Iraq and Afghanistan and was described by his peers and mentors as being highly dedicated and accomplished, but also humble, loyal and compassionate.

Tragically, Major Follansbee took his own life in December 2012. His parents, Dr. and Mrs. William Follansbee, know firsthand the alarming statistics about suicide in the military and the challenges that many veterans face as they transition from military duty to civilian life.

For that reason, the Follansbee family, in partnership with Animal Friends, established the Major Ben Follansbee Memorial Fund to support the Pets for Vets® program at Animal Friends and its important work to build healthy and supportive relationships between veterans and pets.
