Help me raise funds to provide free service dogs and canine-assisted therapy programs to America’s Warriors
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
To me, the impact of Paws for Purple Hearts is indescribable.
As a staff member at Paws for Purple Hearts, I often find myself in awe of the work being done at this organization. At our core, our mission is to provide the highest quality assistance dogs and canine-assisted therapeutic programs to our Warriors. But it goes deeper than this.
Through Canine-Assisted Warrior Therapy, Warriors learn again how to connect with others and it starts with our silly pups. Each session begins with grooming, allowing the Warriors to build a connection with the dogs. Then the Warriors work with the dogs to teach them commands that will benefit their comrade who will ultimately be placed with the dog. We create a safe space where Warriors can enjoy spending time with our dogs. Many times, Warriors come to our facility reserved and leave smiling.
It’s in these moments that I feel strong emotions that I can’t find the right words to describe.
This is why I support Paws for Purple Hearts.
Meet Hicks, my favorite future service dog! Your donation will help him on his journey to becoming a Warrior’s battle buddy.
Paws for Purple Hearts
At Paws for Purple Hearts, we are dedicated to improving the lives of America’s Warriors facing mobility challenges and trauma-related conditions such as PTSD and TBI by providing the highest quality assistance dogs and canine assisted therapeutic programs. Our motto, “Warriors Helping Warriors®” summarizes our dedication to providing opportunities for Veterans and Service Members to prepare lifelong service companions for their comrades in need. Through PPH’s innovative therapeutic programs, America’s wounded heroes get first-hand experience working with, handling, caring for and training service dogs. Integrated into their mental health treatment plan, these life-saving programs benefit both the Warrior and their comrades. Every PPH dog-in-training helps 40-60 Warriors.
Warriors like Duncan find healing through helping when they train PPH service dogs for their fellow wounded comrades.
