Return to Heal’s mission is to better the quality of life of our nation’s disabled veterans and their families utilizing the companionship of service dogs. We will achieve this through service dog education, training, advocating, while sharing canine experience and providing veteran peer-support.
About Our dogs
All of our service dogs are local rescues or donations from reputable breeders. During training, volunteers often foster the dogs to ensure top-notch care. We are open to working with all breeds, but each dog must pass an initial review for aptitude for the service dog lifestyle and training process.
Our Commitment to Quality
Return to Heal intends to be accredited by Assistance Dogs International (ADI). We are in the process of completing this endeavor currently. With that goal in mind, Return to heal follows ADI’s guidelines and standards regarding the training and placement of our service dogs.
Community Support is Key
Return to Heal is fueled by the needs of our veterans and the generosity of our donors. Continued community participation and volunteering at our fundraising events and awareness rallies will help connect the need with the generous and the kind.
