Mission

Assessment and training focused on pairing veterans with shelter dogs to become working teams, meeting each others physical and emotional needs. The veterans are educated and trained on ways to take care of his/her dog to maintain the skills desired in the dog. We also support the veteran and the dog in maintaining a healthy relationship, creating and maintaining the animal/human bond.
