Fundraising For War Dogs Making It Home

We are raising money to help support the charity War Dogs Making It Home, a charity that rescues dogs from high-kill shelters and pairs them with veterans living with PTSD/TBI, as part of our (final) class project in DePaul's MBA program. Please help the charity (and us) in this endeavor!

Thank you for your support!

The Mission of War Dogs Making It Home
War Dogs helps veterans better manage the invisible and lifelong challenges of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and brain injury (PTSD/TBI) by pairing them with dogs they help rescue and train to be their service dogs. The vets are saving the dogs lives. The dogs are saving theirs, creating a better life for both.

War Dogs is taking a cutting edge approach to helping veterans. Under the direction of Elana Morgan it pairs dogs rescued from shelters with veterans in an intense training process that has proven to be highly effective while also saving time and money.
Simply put, this program is dramatically changing the lives of veterans who might otherwise still be waiting for an already trained dog to become available. And it does so while providing an extra therapeutic dimension whose benefits are only beginning to be understood. This involves the sense of responsibility and commitment that the veterans feel for their dogs"”who they know were facing euthanasia before being selected for the program.

For those suffering from PTSD, time is not on their side. Please understand that this is truly a life and death situation for our vets and that programs like War Dogs are proving that by combining the ideas, talent and dedication of people like Elana Morgan with the generosity of donors like you, lives can be saved. And the quality of those lives saved can be dramatically-wonderfully-improved.
