Paws for Purple Hearts is a non-profit organization based out of California but has 5 branches across the United States. We raise and train service dogs and give them to veterans and active duty service members who suffer from mobility impairments or trauma related conditions such as PTSD or TBI.
We also provide a unique type of therapy at our local VAs and DOD facilities called Canine Assisted Warrior Therapy®. During this therapy, our program instructors teach veterans how to train service dogs. The dogs are then placed with another veteran who struggles with the same issues that they do. All of our services are provided free of charge.
