The 2020-2021 National Theme is “Support Our Brave and Noble Patriots” and is inspired by a line in our C.A.R.
Song, which was written in 1928 and continues to represent C.A.R.’ s ideals of patriotism and support for our

The 2020-2021 National Theme supports the 2020-2021 National Project, Pets for Vets, a 501(c)(3) organization, to
raise funds to place companion animals with veterans, many of which are experiencing PTSD. The animals are
adopted and trained through donations, and each companion animal is highly trained to best meet the veteran’s needs.

Pets for Vets assists in the veteran’s fight against PTSD through building a safety net with the animal, creating
connections, and overcoming trauma. Veterans apply for an animal through Pets for Vets and go through an interview
process to match the veterans with an animal. Animals are then selected from the shelter, specifically for each
individual veteran, and are trained before being placed with the veteran. Through this process, Pets for Vets helps to
save pets from shelters, as well as provides veterans with the companions and support they need.

Through this year’s National Theme and Project, C.A.R. members are encouraged to give back to those who have
served our nation and Support Our Brave and Noble Patriots.
