Healing4Heroes is in the spotlight on Day 22 of #30DaysOfCaring. Healing4Heroes is a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting our military service members and veterans lead healthy, productive lives. Their objective is to connect wounded service members, as well as those with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury, with certified service dogs.
Healing4Heroes serves the community by helping military personnel and veterans as well as local animal shelters by rescuing suitable dogs. Our military personnel and veterans move forward, living more productive lives after being wounded both physically and/or mentally with the assistance of service animals. The lives of unwanted shelter dogs are saved by becoming trained service companions. Service dogs are free of charge to the veteran.
Healing4Heroes became a national organization in 2011. Headquarters is based south of Atlanta, Georgia, but there is a satellite office in Lafayette, Louisiana. Employees and volunteers travel nationwide, so please email Healing4Heroes to see when they might be in your area.
