BENEFITING: GUARDIAN ANGELS MEDICAL SERVICE DOGS INC
At Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs, we rescue, raise, train and finally, donate federally-protected, custom trained medical service dogs to veterans suffering from both mental & physical disabilities. We've all heard the disturbing statistics regarding suicide and our veterans, with a suicide occurring at one nearly every 80 minutes. But when a veteran is paired with a Guardian Angels Medical Service Dog, that rate falls to ZERO. Our veterans report not only decrease of use, but in cases, a complete elimination of prescription medication, improved sleep and family life, and even a return to the workforce. We can only accomplish our mission with your help. It takes on average $20,000 - $25,000 and 6 to 12 months to fully train a medical service dog and with your assistance, we can get these life-saving dogs to more veterans in need.
