Endless Story Opportunities
If you're a member of the media in search of a good story, you've come to the right place. America's VetDogs has amazing stories to tell, and limitless ways to tell them. Whether you're looking for an uplifting tale with a happy ending, a compelling angle for a story about the transformational power of an assistance dog, an inspiring tale of a veteran with a disability, or a professional expert to give opinions and advice on everything from veterinary care to planned giving, we're happy to be your resource.
Since 2003, America’s VetDogs has trained and placed guide, hearing, PTSD, and service dogs to provide independence, enhanced mobility and companionship to veterans with disabilities from all eras. In 2015, VetDogs opened its programs to first responders, including fire, police, and emergency medical personnel. America's VetDogs is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization founded by the Guide Dog Foundation and relies on contributions from generous individuals, corporations, service clubs, and foundations to fund its mission to help those who have served our country live with dignity and independence. It costs over $50,000 to breed, raise, train, and place one assistance dog, but America’s VetDogs provides its services completely free of charge to the individual.
