100 SERVICE DOGS FOR 100 VETERANS
The 100 service dogs for 100 veterans’ program is a novel concept that was designed by veterans for veterans in an effort to directly affect the decline in the nation’s veteran suicide rate.
As Part of our commitment to the American veteran and their families, USAVET.org has partnered with Bob Smith’s K9 Association on this collaborative nontraditional and
innovative approach to help assist veterans not only with suicide prevention as well as many diverse types of service-related injuries to include PTSD, TBI, limbs and or other extremities.
The 100-service dog project continues to deliver the potential to save 2 lives with each veteran/Services Dog Team trained. Not only the Service member/Veteran, but also the life of a rescued kennel pup, trained to become a service dog.
We believe the most important and recognizable results of the program thus far can be realized across a multitude of metrics and milestones.
However it is never more evident than being recognized on the face of a veteran , while they are training their service dog.
