Finding You Veteran's Program

We pair veterans bearing invisible wounds with dogs rescued from euthanasia while engaging their communities to share in the burden of care for these misunderstood and often discarded souls.

Population(s) Served

We will prepare many more dogs than are needed for the veteran's program and will adopt the "extras" out into the regional community. Each dog will be pack trained, companion ready and the new owners will be shown our behavior method to insure a proper and lasting relationship.
