Abstract

Healing Paws for Warriors is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing post 9/11 combat veterans wounded from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Military Sexual Trauma (MST) rescue-to-trained ADA certified service dogs. 
Our staff is comprised of a combat medical war veteran, practicing PTSD therapist, professional service dog trainer, a veterinarian, and many other supportive volunteers.  
Our dogs come only from local rescues.  Our service dog trainer teaches the dogs and the veterans as a team.  The dogs are not pets, they are service dogs with the complete protection and rights granted by the American with Disabilities Act.  
We are devoted to pairing and training service dogs with veterans at NO COST to the veteran to enroll!
