How to Help

Veteran Needs

Created by a veteran for a veteran. Our founder, John Lopez, was a combat engineer and served in Afghanistan in 2006.

Prisoner Rehab

Our mission is to help veterans suffering the effects of war transition into their civilian lives by providing a service dog trained to mitigate the effects of PTSD.

Service Dogs

We also train service dogs for veterans with diabetes, epilepsy, and limited mobility.

Studies estimate 22 veterans commit suicide every day – one is too many.

For some, a service dog can make the difference:

“(my service dog)…has gotten me from always having a plan on how I want to end my life, to having a plan on what I want to do next with my life.”

(quote from a K9s For Camo Veteran)

Why do we do it?

Reports show Veteran Suicide occurs at a rate of 22 people per day. Our hope is to help reduce this number by providing task trained service dogs at no cost to the veteran to help mitigate the effects of PTSD and other various disabilities.

Each of our dogs comes from local animal shelters and are often saved from death row. Our dogs are then sent to the Ozark Correctional Facility to receive their task training from the inmates. This allows the dogs to receive intense training and perfect their tasks and provides the inmates marketable job skills when reentering society.

Offenders are also given new life skills. Recent studies show that inmates in the Puppy for Parole Program are much 80% less likely to become a repeat offender and 90% more likely to gain a job when released.
