The America’s VetDogs and its sister organization, the Guide Dog Foundation (GuideDog.org), train and place service dogs for those with physical disabilities; guide dogs for individuals who are blind or have low vision; service dogs to help mitigate the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder; hearing dogs for those who have lost their hearing, and facility dogs as part of the rehabilitation process in military and VA hospitals.

Each organization is a separate 501(c)(3) not-for-profit that serve clients from across the United States and Canada and both are accredited by the International Guide Dog Federation and Assistance Dogs International.
