Abstract

We create an opportunity to save shelter dogs, train them, and place them with deserving service members who have been diagnosed with post-combat stress and anxiety. There is no out of pocket cost for the veteran to receive a trained dog, and they gain a constant companion to help them cope with the unique challenges of their everyday life.

We are a group of men and women who have either served in or worked closely with our military. We’ve seen the difficulties that our men and women face when returning to civilian life, and we’ve known men and women who have tragically contributed to the unprecedented rate of veteran suicides. We are committed to standing by our veterans, and keeping them aware that we care. 

We are committed to helping the men and women who have sacrificed to defend our country and her citizens. We aim to help those who have returned home but are not fully able to integrate back into the normal lives that they once enjoyed because of traumatic  experiences.

Our experienced staff has over 20 years of experience training and working with canines, including military working dogs,
and they personally train and evaluate each dog before it is Dogs2DogTags certified and ready for it's new family.
