Changing the lives of Homeless Veterans and rescued Dogs one boot and one paw at a time

Veterans Support Centers of America has started a new service dog training program.

We are the only organization that teaches homeless veterans how to train dogs we have rescued to be companion and service dogs. The Vets receive vocational training on dog care and handling and the dogs receive a home. ALL of our dogs are rescued animals. The dog handler may keep the dog he has trained or we adopt the dog out to disabled veterans and first responders.

VSCOA recognized that there is a PTSD epidemic among our returning troops and decided to do something about it. We are fortunate enough to have a retired Air Force K-9 Police officer as our Master trainer. All the staff at VSCOA and in the PAWS program are former homeless veterans who have over come addiction, PTSD and traumatic brain injury to become productive memebers of society.

The average cost of rescueing, raising, housing and training a dog and teaching a homeless Veteran ranges about $25,000. These homeless Vets and dogs deserve your help. Please help support our program today.
