About Our Chapter

This chapter serves Veterans in Georgia.


Meet Chapter Director Jack Feeney
Jack was born and raised in New York City and has always had rescue animals in his life. His family still talks about how he would bring stray dogs home. Jack was a Sergeant in the Marine Corps and served 5 years on active duty. He continued his service with the NYPD as a Police Officer and Detective for over 20 years. He is a former small business owner and operations manager in the building maintenance and service industry.

In 2016 Jack and his wife of 26 years, Kathleen decided it was time for a change and relocated to north Georgia. Throughout life's changes and challenges, Jack has never lost the love for animals in need. Jack has successfully trained dogs using positive reinforcement to achieve Canine Good Citizen certification.

Jack took his passion and put it into action by joining the Pets for Vets Georgia Chapter. Jack has been the veteran liaison, foster volunteer and has assisted in training dogs for Veterans. When the chapters founding director announced her retirement, it was a perfect fit and opportunity for Jack to further his commitment to both veterans and animals in the position of acting director for the chapter. 

Jack fully understands the power of the human animal bond and the value it produces when dealing with post traumatic stress and emotional issues. Combining Jack's vast experience in the public and private sectors, along with his love of animals, he has developed a contagious spirit of cooperation and understanding when working with others for our common objective. Which is healing the emotional wounds of our Veterans and saving shelter animals here in Georgia. 

Jack has a very diversified  background that makes him a perfect fit for the chapter. In addition to Pets for Vets, Jack volunteers at a local animal shelter, walking and training dogs in a nationally recognized program that enhances the adoptability of shelter dogs trained in basic obedience, increasing their chances to be placed in forever homes.
