To train and place shelter dogs to serve and provide independence to our U.S. military veterans that suffer from the emotional effects of war. In turn, each veteran can experience the therapeutic and unconditional love only a companion animal can bring.
There is no cost to a Veteran for the service dogs we raise, train, and place.
In the Midst of War, a Soldier hears a whimper. They pause for a moment, and see an injured, malnourished dog. The dog reminds the Soldier of home. As the soldier bends down and scoops the dog up, two lives are saved. At the moment, amongst all the chaos and destruction, a bond is formed.
Vets to Vets was born when Paws of War saw the crucial need for veterinary care for the pets of veterans and first responders living with disabilities. This newly-renovated vehicle has been customized to fit the needs of this specialized program, and will be staffed by veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and assistants.
