A project of Helping Paws of Minnesota, Inc.
Helping Paws is proud to announce the start of a pilot program to provide service dogs to veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Helping Paws will begin training canines for military veterans suffering from post traumatic stress disorder, known as PTSD. We recognize the increasing need for this type of service dog and feel confident that we can help.
Applications from veterans with PTSD are now being accepted for the first time. Veterans who apply and are later accepted will be matched with either a Golden Retriever or a Labrador Retriever at minimal cost. The $30,000 expense for the two years it takes to train a dog is entirely covered by donations. These veterans have given so much to our country and this is a way we can help them in return. Your donation will make a huge difference.
