No Veteran Left Behind!
The No Veteran Left Behind Program was developed to enable disabled American heroes across the U.S. to train their own service dog and promote the rescue of shelter dogs.  What makes us different than other service dog organizations is we do not charge heroes for our services, as they help other teams with the program and pay it forward, 100% donations go directly to support hero/dog teams.  At Working Dogs For Vets we’re passionate about helping heroes and our service dogs. Heroe/dog teams from the No Veteran Left behind program are always welcome to train at workshops with volunteer trainers. Much of our training is done by way of local volunteers, online and phone support.

More about The No Veteran Left Behind Program
Working Dogs For Vets-Our Nonprofit rescues dogs from shelters to train them as service dogs for disabled heroes. Working with volunteers, the dogs are trained to perform dozens of tasks for their owner-handler. Working Dogs For Vets has teamed hundreds of disabled heroes with service dogs, helping them to regain their independence and build their confidence and self esteem. Our P.T.S.D. Service Dogs have provided our members with relief from P.T.S.D. night terrors, anger & irritability and fear of crowds. This helps heroes to be an active part of family life again, with help from Working Dogs For Vets and No Veteran Left Behind. This program saves lives on both ends of the leash. Read more
