Since 2003, America’s VetDogs has trained and placed guide and service dogs, FREE of charge, with our nation’s wounded veterans. These special assistance dogs are custom 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).

Thank you for your support of America’s VetDogs and its mission to provide service dogs FREE of charge to veterans and first responders with disabilities. We are excited to announce that we will once again host the America’s VetDogs Run & Dog Walk event in Baltimore, MD. To keep everyone safe and allow the opportunity for those near and far to participate, this event will be held both in-person and as a virtual event.

The on-going pandemic has not stopped veterans and first responders from applying to America’s VetDogs in hopes to receive a service dog of their own, and our waiting list continues to grow. You can help America’s VetDogs make a difference in the lives of veterans in need by sponsoring this special event to be held on Sunday, April 24, 2022. This fundraiser is a 5K and 2-mile dog walk to take place at THE AVENUE at White Marsh in Baltimore, Maryland. For those that live out-of-state you can walk or run in your own neighborhood too!
