We Support Our Troops
Veteran Founded / Veteran Led
Healing Paws for Warriors is dedicated to providing Post-9/11 combat veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and Military Sexual Trauma (MST) rescue-to-trained ADA-certified service dogs. We are a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our Tax ID number is: 47-3963187.
PROBLEM: According to a study conducted by the Department of Veterans Affairs, 22 veterans and active duty members take their own lives every day. Burdened with a stigma associated with mental health issues and the “shame” surrounding PTS, TBI, and MST, they turn to suicide as an option to relieve their suffering.
SOLUTION: We are committed to providing our heroes the tools to live; improving veterans’ symptoms as they struggle with their conditions. We want to increase their self-esteem, allow them to lead a more productive life, and help alleviate some of their symptoms. By training rescue or shelter dogs, we allow the veteran to receive the dog at no cost. But more importantly, we’ve potentially saved two lives in the process.
SUPPORT: The battle doesn’t always end when our warriors come home…but hope doesn’t have to die. We are dedicated to bringing awareness to veteran suicides—22 a day—caused by PTSD, TBI, and MST. Please support us with corporate sponsorship, fundraising, donating, or volunteering.
