shelter to service dog

Through the efforts of Furry Friends Shelter to Service Program our wounded Veterans and Gold/Blue Star families are matched with a companion animal/emotional support dog through our Hero Dog program. Our Hero Dogs, once adopted, are supported with multiple in-depth follow-up training sessions. These sessions help to build a bond between dog and handler and also ensure that each Hero Dog is well-trained. Our dedicated volunteers and professional trainers work alongside deserving Veterans/Gold /Blue Star families to develop lasting and meaningful bonds.
