Healing4Heroes™ is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization dedicated to assisting those who have courageously served our country lead healthy, productive lives. Our objective is to connect wounded / disabled service members, as well as those with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury, with A.D.A. compliant service dogs. Both the life of the soldier and of the service dog will be enhanced by the presence of the other.
Healing4Heroes(tm) helps our military personnel and veterans move forward after being wounded both physically and/or mentally with the assistance of service animals. Healing4Heroes(tm) also saves the lives of unwanted shelter dogs by rescuing them and training them to become fully trained, A.D.A. complaint service animals. These dogs allow our soldiers to move forward and live more productive lives by allowing them to deal more effectively with their traumas and giving them the confidence and security to start to heal. At the same time, our veterans give these dogs a purpose in life and the chance to be loved and part of a family. The bond that develops between veteran and dog is one of a kind and each is saving the other. The dogs and training are provided free of charge to each veteran and cost our organization about $6000. Each veteran is directly involved in the training of their service dog, cementing that bond and starting the path of healing for vet and pet.
