America's VetDogs - The Veteran's K-9 Corps

Description

America’s VetDogs® – The Veteran's K-9 Corps® is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization founded by the accredited Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind and serves the needs of disabled veterans from all eras and active duty personnel.

In 2003, the Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind recognized the need for an assistance dog program for veterans that would incorporate guide dogs, service dogs, and innovative training techniques. America’s VetDogs was created and incorporated to give veterans easy access to the best services possible to improve their lives.

They provide guide dogs for veterans who are blind; service dogs for those with other physical disabilities; physical and occupational therapy dogs to work with amputees in military and VA hospitals; and combat stress control dogs to be deployed in theater.

All of their services are provided at no cost to veterans, and their funding comes from the generous contributions of individuals, corporations, foundations, businesses, and service and fraternal clubs.
