Working Dogs for Vets
We rescue, train and pair service dogs with Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine and disabled military veterans. We provide training, supplies, school, classes, retreats and more. Service dogs reduce suicide. We've served more than 3,000 dog/veteran teams. Your donation saves lives at both ends of the leash!
Federal and postal employees and military personnel can give at work through the Combined Federal Campaign. Starting in 2017, they can make their donation or pledge through a central CFC website. This new website is one of several changes that are greatly lowering the CFC's costs, which means nearly all your donation will go to the charities you support. Here's more on the CFC's changes.
To support this charity navigate to the CFC site by clicking "Give through the CFC Now". From there click "Find a CFC Charity." In the "Charity" field, put in the charity's name or, if that doesn't work, its CFC number.
Veterans commit suicide at the rate of 1 every 59 minutes.
That's 22 veterans a day!
About 2.7 million shelter dogs in the U.S. are put down each year.
That's about 1 every 11 seconds!
More than 1.5 million disabled veterans are in need of a service dog.

We do not charge veterans for any of our services. We are a volunteer-based, pay-it-forward program. We stretch every dollar raised.
With the No Veteran Left Behind Program, there is little to no waiting list.
Working Dogs For Vets is mission driven and stretches every dollar. We are platinum rated on Guidestar and maintain
transparency by publishing our financials on our website. We also recently had an audit performed which is also listed on our
website. We use donated funding wisely to accomplish our mission effectively.
