Country star Brantley Gilbert is partnering with several pet brands to help give companion dogs to military veterans in need of aid.

Country singer Brantly Gilbert makes it clear his love of America and her military members and veterans are close to his heart. He says he is often inspired by the sacrifices the military makes on his behalf and he and his wife Amber Cochran wanted to help give back.

So Gilbert has partnered with several pet product sponsors like Pedigree, Custom Canine Unlimited and the Atlanta Humane Society to help give veterans some support with their own companion dogs.

Gilbert often tours with the USO and celebrates veterans and Wounded Warriors and has his entire career. This partnership is another way he says he can show his gratitude for sacrifice and service.

Gilbert decided he’d help in a canine kind of way because of his wife. Cochran was not a dog person when they began dating, but got to know and love dogs because of his dogs Sylo and Alley. They then adopted a three-year-old Golden retriever named Beau and they say that they knew the power of unconditional love for your pet.

Because Gilbert toured, he turned to Unlimited Training to help him with Beau’s training. They also are known for their training of service dogs, as well as rescues turned service dogs, and Beau often helps with that process. Gilbert says he’s proud his boy Beau helps military members, and he’s proud to have a personal connection with the dogs who go to worthy Vets.

Gilbert added Pedigree brand as a partner, and representative Liz Adkins said that they were happy to partner as they know it is a beautiful thing to be part of a process that matches terrific dogs with loving homes and Veterans forever. Pedigree donates a year’s worth of food to each matched dog, and says that the partnership with Gilbert helps them all bring a joy that veterans so rightly deserve.
