“Saving two lives at a time.”
Our Goals are to obtain a training facility to train and house our dogs in training.
Wolfhounds Legacy is a 501c3 nonprofit organization mission is rescuing and training dogs to become certified service animals for the benefit of veterans with PTSD and creating a safe zone for them to go to. Both dog and veteran will be brought together for training prior to placing the dog into the home to ensure a perfect fit. All of the rescue dogs we bring into our care are saved from high Risk shelters and start to train in a home environment. They are introduced to children, pets and other outdoor environments that make up the everyday normal activities of our veterans. These dogs then choose their veteran and the road to service dog begins. They train for 8 month and are tested to ensure they are the perfect service dog. We not only want to save one life, we are focused on saving two. We are raising funds through donations and grants to pay the adoption fees for the dogs and vetting for the right dog to begin training with a veteran. Contact us for location and time. Come visit us and see our dogs.We help join a military veteran with a unique service dog. By finding dogs from high risk shelters and pairing them up with U.S. veterans based on specific needs, we are helping the lives of both veteran and dog. Wolfhounds Legacy is a nonprofit organization working with local dog rescues with the goal of rescuing and training dogs to become certified service animals for the benefit of veterans with PTSD.

Veterans counted for 18% of all deaths from suicide in the United States. That is a striking statistic and the reason for our efforts. The lives of military veterans are extremely important to our country and our community. Service dogs have been proven to be a benefit to military veterans for multiple purposes. Dogs make great companions and can provide stress relief and a purpose to a veteran’s life. Service dogs can also help veterans who are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, seizures, or mobility issues . Our veterans in the program have seen the difference in themselves and their dogs. Our goal however is not only save one life, but two. According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, 670,000 dogs are euthanized each year. We hope to be a part of the decline of that number by receiving our soon-to-be service dogs from high risk shelters. The dogs that we intake were saved from euthanasia and placed in our program. By doing this we are promoting adoption of shelter pets and saving lives. These dogs will go on to become service dogs and save the lives of our United States veterans. We are currently in need of:
*Indoor Training Facility
*Donors willing to support
*Short term Foster homes for dogs
*Volunteer dog handlers for
