About America’s VetDogs:

Image result for VetdogsAmerica’s VetDogs® is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that serves the needs of disabled veterans, active-duty service members, and first responders with disabilities, allowing them to once again live with pride and self-reliance.

VetDogs provide guide dogs for individuals who are blind or have low vision; hearing dogs for those who have lost their hearing later in life; service dogs for those with other physical disabilities; facility dogs as part of the rehabilitation process in military and VA hospitals, and specialized service dogs to help mitigate the effects of PTSD in an effort to provide the emotional and physical support needed.

It costs over $50,000 to breed, raise, train, and place one assistance dog; however, there is never a charge to the veteran. All of our funding comes from the generous contributions of individuals, corporations, foundations, businesses, and service and fraternal clubs.

For a veteran with a serious limb injury, amputation, or traumatic brain injury, a service dog can provide stability support climbing up and down stairs or getting in and out of a chair, and can be trained to fetch and retrieve specific items, e.g., medication, a wallet, or a phone. For veterans with seizure disorder, dogs can be trained to alert for seizure response.
