Mission Statement

Hero Dogs, Inc., a Maryland 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, improves quality of life for our nation’s heroes by raising, training, and placing service dogs and other highly skilled canines, free of charge with lifetime support of the partnerships.

Description

Hero Dogs staff and volunteers train dogs to assist Veterans and First Responders with physical limitations and/or mobility issues, hearing loss, mental health disorders, or combinations of these. A Hero Dog reduces their partner's reliance on other people by doing tasks that they cannot do alone. A dedicated service dog can give their partner the confidence and support to travel outside the home independently, (re)join the workforce, and accomplish the everyday tasks of living.

I am a huge dog person and I appreciate any group that works for the well-being of homeless dogs.
