About Matthew Redlein 

8th Grader, Matthew Redlein is leading fundraising efforts at his school, and within his community, to raise awareness about Service Dogs and the difference they can make in the lives of veterans & first responders suffering from PTSD, blindness, hearing loss, amputations & other post combat disabilities. For every $6,000 raised, Matthew will be able to sponsor a future Service Dog that will be trained & placed with a veteran or first responder.

America’s VetDogs and the Guide Dog Foundation, located in Smithtown, New York, have been serving the needs of disabled veterans from all eras who have honorably served our country.  

Please consider helping Matthew reach his goal of $50,000.

About America’s VetDogs®

America’s VetDogs® is dedicated to providing service dogs, FREE of charge, to servicemen and women who have sacrificed so much for this country.  Since 2006, more than 350 assistance dogs have been trained and placed as guide and service dogs with disabled veterans of all eras. America’s VetDogs provides guide dogs with individuals who are blind or have low vision; hearing dogs for people who have lost their hearing later in life, service dogs for those with other physical disabilities, facility dogs that work with physical and occupational therapists as part of the rehabilitation process in military and VA hospitals, and PTSD service dogs to help mitigate the effects of PTSD in an effort to provide the emotional and physical support needed.

In 2013, America’s VetDogs became the second assistance dog organization in the United States to be certified by the International Guide Dog Federation and Assistance Dogs International – the Guide Dog Foundation was the first.

The cost to breed, raise, train, and place one assistance dog is over $50,000.  America’s VetDogs relies on contributions from generous individuals, corporations, service clubs and foundations. To learn more about America’s VetDogs and its services and programs, visit
