Vet & Dog

Our Mission

Serving Veterans with Invisible Wounds

We rescue shelter dogs, train them in our prison programs, pair them with veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or Traumatic Brain Injury, and continue their training to be service dogs. By doing this, we are Rescuing One to Heal Another!

Our Programs


STAR Training Programs

Prison Housed Basic Training

We have two prison training programs for our service dog cadets.
Both facilities house selected dogs for 4-6 months prior to pairing them with a veteran.

Bring Your Own Dog

For Qualifying Veterans and Dogs

Sometimes our veterans have formed a bond with a dog already in their home. With the Bring Your Own Dog program, once the veteran is accepted, the dog will be evaluated to determine training as a service dog.
