Painted Paws for Veterans is dedicated to assisting veterans and their families in adopting canine companions from animal shelters and rescues, in order to provide emotional support and a way to reconnect to life and family, both during and after military service.
In addition to our adoption assistance program, we also offer service dog training, therapy visits, veteran retreats and public education on PTSD and other veteran emotional issues. Please browse our site for more information about our programs, and the benefits of owning or spending time with a canine companion.
Our programs are geared toward retired and disabled Veterans. Adoptions to active duty members and their families are considered on a case-by-case basis, due to issues with deployment and re-location.
Please feel free to contact us with any comments or questions.
