The country's first national humane organization announced plans to build a center for training shelter dogs for service to Veterans with PTSD and other disabilities.
This new canine training center will provide specialized PTS and TBI service dogs to veterans in need, at no cost to the recipient.
"Every day, an average of 20 American veterans commit suicide, while an estimated 670,000 dogs are euthanized in U.S. animal shelters each year," said President and CEO of American Humane, Dr. Robin Ganzert. "American Humane is thrilled to launch this program to help save lives on both ends of leash."
At $20,000 per dog to train, many corporate sponsors and individual donors are to thank for this amazing new program.
