Our Mission

  • 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!



Our Goal

  • Bringing awareness to veteran suicide; reducing the numbers one dog at a time.

  • Give hope and healing to Veterans and rescue dogs through empowering military heroes to return to civilian life with dignity and independence

  • Express gratitude to those who have served, or are serving our great country.

  • Reduce number of canines in shelters; ending pet homelessness.
