THE PLAY YARD
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.
