VANCOUVER — The Ray Hickey Foundation values and appreciates military service. That’s why on Veterans Day, Linda Rae Hickey was inspired to reach out to the Humane Society for Southwest Washington with a way to make sure that veterans and active duty service members could come home to a loving animal every day.Ray Hickey Foundation will pay for pet adoptions for veterans until end of the month

What began as a promotion for the holiday weekend has been extended to the end of November.

“It is my hope that more veterans can participate by extending the adoption deadline, and add a loving companion to their family,” Hickey said.

“The Humane Society for Southwest Washington is honored to work with the Ray Hickey Foundation to ensure that veterans and their families experience the unique bond with people and animals,” said Stacey Graham, Humane Society president. “And, we are are grateful that the cats and dogs are going to loving homes.”
