Healing 4Heroes is a 501 (c) 3 licensed charity dedicated to connecting wounded service members, as well as those with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury, with certified service dogs. We are different from other organizations in that we require the veteran train with their service companion during the course with the assistance of a professional trainer experienced with psychiatric service dogs. This is necessary for the canine to bond with the veteran thus learning the triggers the veteran experiences as they are unique to each individual. Our program is free Training of the canine is free to the veteran, and our trainer is capable of traveling to the location of the veteran. Healing4Heroes only uses rescue dogs unless the veteran already has his/her own family dog which must meet program requirements and be capable of being trained as a service companion. We are a member of the Psychiatric Service Dog Registry.
