How You Can Help!


To provide a professionally trained assistance dog prepared by a qualified instructor to every disabled hero wounded in the global war on terrorism that will enable them to return to a life with dignity and self-reliance whether they are visually impaired or have other special needs that require an assistance dog. All of the services are provided at no cost to the veteran.

Veterans Helping Today′s Returning Heroes Inc. is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization created to solicit and provide funds for America′s VetDogs so that they may provide guide or service dogs and training to veterans and active military personnel who have been wounded in the global war on terrorism and who require the use of an assistance dog to help them return to a life of self-reliance and dignity whether they are blind or visually impaired or have other special needs.

Veterans Helping Today′s Returning Heroes evolved from the Boca West VetDogs Fund, a special fund created by two Florida veterans to help the heroes of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan get the assistance dogs they need through America′s VetDogs ̵ the Veteran′s K-9 Corps.

America′s VetDogs is an evolving program that strives to meet the ever−growing needs of veterans who experience visual, physical, and/or emotional trauma. Requests from disabled veterans range from dual-trained dogs for balance/stability (physical therapy), retrieval, responders to alarms, and assistance with activities of independent living to Trekker GPS training to therapy dogs for active military personnel − providing emotional support for those who have PTSD and other combat−related challenges.

The average working life of an assistance dog is between seven and 10 years. After a veteran has received a guide or assistance dog, he is eligible for another dog, including training, at no cost after he has retired his dog. Your Gift for Life makes this possible.

Foster Home Program

This program is designed to provide an alternative to the unwanted surrender of beloved pets of our deploying military service members. We do this by recruiting and qualifying volunteer foster homes who are willing to open their homes to provide a loving and safe environment for these pets until they can be reunited upon their owners' return. Beyond preparing for veterinary care and basic food/supply needs, this service is provided at "no cost" to the military service member.
