Our Vision: To help veterans find a new purpose along with the mutual support and companionship that comes from working with dogs.
Our Mission: Our mission is to provide support and companionship for both veterans and shelter dogs. Our staff will coach veterans through a series of hands-on instructional workshops with selected shelter dogs, resulting in a comprehensive understanding of dogs, dog behavior, and our own relationship with dogs. This program, as a transitional step, gives veterans the opportunity to provide a service to their community by engaging with and socializing shelter dogs in need, while at the same time the veterans themselves receive companionship, support and a sense of purpose through their work with the dogs.
Our target audience is any United States military veterans (or active duty military) who want to help homeless dogs. There is no cost to the veteran to participate.
