DOGS 4 WARRIORS UTILIZES RESCUE DOGS FOR OUR PROGRAM
When a member of the military is called to duty, they put their entire lives on hold. They box up their lives and put them on a shelf with a tag that says “to be continued……”. Some of those lives never get the chance to be continued and then there are those who get to come home, but they are not the same people who left. PTSD and TBI often cause the Veterans who return to feel like they are no longer able to face life. They feel out of place, confused, anxious, afraid, and on edge. The things they have been through, most people can’t even imagine and yet these veterans are judged because of that. One of the veterans in our program told me “It’s like being broken and half the pieces are missing so you cant even begin to put things back together.” At Dogs 4 Warriors Inc we know that a service dog won’t fix everything but we also know that they will help mend the wounds. We may not be able to fill in all the cracks but we will help find the pieces.
