Service dogs for Vets

Providing specially trained assistance dogs for Veterans!

We rescue dogs from shelters, rescue groups and owners who no longer want them.  Then we train the dog to be of special service to our veterans.  These dogs are taught tasks such as turning on lights, waking the handler from a nightmare, helping to find things and getting out of crowded places are but some of the tasks the Mutts learn.  Each dog is trained to their handlers specific needs.  We train and provide the dogs at no cost to a Veteran with a diagnosed disability.

Blizzard is a Great Pyrenees who got too big for his family. He was donated to Mission Ready Mutts where he began his training.  He was paired with a Veteran from Maine who has suffered from PTSD for over 35 years.  Since being awarded Blizzard "The Blizz" as he calls him;) The man has lost 15 pounds... gotta walk the dog!He is happier and has reduced medication needs and fewer number of nightmares.  Meanwhile Blizzard has grown to 110 pounds! I think we know where the 15 pounds went...

On their walks they have met Moose which Blizzard was not fond of! Sometimes Blizzard likes to get lost in the snow.

Our most recent placement was Hannah, she was placed with a lady who lives alone and suffers from cerebral palsey.  Hannah has brought joy and a sense of safety to this lady's life. She loves brushing Hannah and she reports that Hannah "Makes" her get outside more and be more active. They are a perfect pair!


The person who created this page is probably preparing something riveting to post about everything they're doing to give back. We recommend you sit at your computer and hit refresh over and over until their story goes live. You should also scroll down and see if they have a fundraiser going so you can support 'em.
