Dogs Helping Heroes is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping restore lost freedom and peace of mind to wounded veterans, first responders, and Gold Star Families by gifting specially trained and certified assistance dogs. Our inspiration is to improve the daily lives of those we can help. Every stage of our process — from obtaining our dogs to placement with a hero — involves a vast network of support.
