Help America's Heroes

Since 2003, America’s VetDogs has trained and placed hundreds of assistance dogs, FREE of charge, with our nation’s wounded veterans.  Special assistance dogs are individually trained to help mitigate disabilities for veterans with blindness, spinal cord injuries, hearing impairments, peripheral and central balance disorders, limb loss, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
