Please help us pair another deserving veteran or first-responder with a life-changing Medical Service Dog. We use only positive reinforcement training techniques, and provide our dogs with the finest food and veterinary care; and although it can take up to 2 years, and $22,000 to train each dog - Every amazing dog from Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs is DONATED to their recipient at no cost to them.
There is no state or federal funding for these life-saving dogs. We are reliant on donations and private grants to fund this effort, and with your help, we can do even more for our brave warriors, like Connor.
Connor served with the 2nd Infantry division, and was deployed to Southern Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom from 2012-2013. Shortly after being discharged in 2015, Connor began developing seizures that were a result of his time in the service. In 2016, Connor was paired with Bradley. The photo you see, was taken the moment they met, and they've been inseparable ever since.
Since being paired with Bradley he no longer has to fear waking up in the back on ambulance alone. Connor wrote: "Without Bradley I wouldn't be where I am. I'm currently attending College with Bradley and he's with me every step of the day. Thank you to the staff or Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs, words cant express my gratitude". Connor is still attending school; doing public speaking, to educate people, and increase awareness of Service Dogs, and most excitingly, has just hit a very important milestone - six months without a seizure!
We provide a thorough 10-day training program when they are paired with their dogs, and offer a lifetime of follow-up support to every team paired. This includes follow-up training, personal support, social media groups to share their experiences and questions with each other.
Join Us, Together We can Unleash the Power to Heal.
