NEW LEASH ON LIFE USA's Fundraiser:

Saving and Reclaiming Lives Veterans Charity Challenge

NEW LEASH ON LIFE USA's Photo

THE STORY:

New Leash on Life USA's "Saving and Reclaiming Lives" program addresses the needs of wounded warriors returning from Iraq and Afghanistan who are suffering from PTSD. With the guidance of a decorated local war hero with PTSD, a certified dog trainer, a psychologist, and case managers, we prepare assistance dogs to help veterans return to civilian life and grow as healthy human beings who can be happy and fulfilled in their lives.

A carefully prepared assistance dog can make active interventions to mitigate the impact of specific symptoms of PTSD like panic attacks, nightmares, isolation, emotional distance, anger, anxiety, helplessness, fear, and depression in order to break negative patterns of reaction and support the veteran in taking positive actions for recovery. Each assistance dog is donated to a veteran with PTSD.

New Leash offers a way to impact social problems, support veterans, reduce recidivism, and reduce the cost of providing service dogs with an outstanding program that restores an individual's self-respect and sense of self-worth while protecting dogs from euthanasia.

So my donation will help a dog who might die unwanted in a shelter, an inmate for whom this could be a life-altering experience and probably has his or her own traumas that this formerly unwanted dog will help to mitigate, and a veteran who will get some much needed canine help to re-integrate into society after exposure to horrible things while serving our country? I think this is the best $50 I have ever invested. Three winners. 3 years ago

My architectural thesis project focused on architecture for organizations like New Leash on Life - how do you design for humans and animals and my father is a Vietnam Veteran and was awarded a Purple Heart for the injuries he sustained in combat. So happy to hear that service dogs are being paired with sufferers of PTSD! Keep up the good work! 3 years ago
