THE STORY:

Our mission is to show respect and dignity towards veterans who may be suffering from PTSD by pairing and training them with a healthy service dog to become a working team. We are motivated to help our veterans because of our gratitude for the sacrifices they have made in order for all Americans to live their lives freely.

Dogs in Honor is an organization that was formed in Sept. of 2014. We pair and train veterans suffering from PTSD with service dogs to create a healthy, mutually beneficial, working team.

Our passion has stemmed from our love of dogs and what these special dogs can do, not only for us, but for our veterans.

We work individually with each veteran and dog to foster a deep, meaningful bond that will help veterans function better in society and at home.

The dogs are free to each one of our veterans, are up to date with vaccines, and are also spayed or neutered.

Just another small token of my gratitude for bringing this wonderful guy into my life--he amazes me every day with some new show of genius or personality; but I truly can't thank the two of you enough or what you do for my brothers and sisters in need. 2 years ago
