It's impossible to fully thank an injured veteran or someone who has been disabled in service to our nation. But a service dog can go a long way in showing our appreciation. A well-trained, eager-to-please dog can do everything from retrieving items, opening doors and turning on lights, to alerting their partners to sounds and waking them from nightmares. In short, a service dog can be invaluable. And to the veteran, they're free. But the truth is, each dog costs around $30,000 to train from puppy to placement. Please give whatever you can. All donations support the raising, training, housing, and feeding of these four-legged heroes.
