SERVICE DOGS FOR VETERANS & FIRST RESPONDERS

The service dog programs of America’s VetDogs were created to provide enhanced mobility and renewed independence to veterans, active-duty service members, and first responders with disabilities, allowing them to once again live with pride and self-reliance.  America’s VetDogs specializes placing highly-skilled service and guide dogs to individuals with physical injuries, PTSD, hearing and vision loss, and seizures.

Our mission is to help those who have served our country honorably live with dignity and independence.

Stories of Veterans and their dogs

“I had a hard time with balance and generally avoided stairs. However, my service dog just helped me walk up uneven railing-less stairs. Every single one - I couldn’t have done that a week before.”
