Hampton Roads Hounds for Heroes

Raised by 41 people in 37 months
With your donations you could help save a Veteran's life through the love and training of this dog while at the same time giving this dog a second chance at life.

Hello everyone! We really need the donations so we can rescue these dogs from the shelter and begin their training. We have a building that we are looking at to become the Hampton Roads Hounds for Heroes headquarters to house the dogs.  The training, living, care, and the meet and greet for the Veterans will be conducted here. We cannot make this happen without your help. Save these Veterans who are still fighting the fight at home.

MISSION STATEMENT


Hampton Roads Hounds for Heroes will provide specially trained rescued dogs to Veterans who have been medically diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome or an equally debilitating psychiatric injury which prohibits them from leading a full and meaningful life.

These dogs are specifically chosen from local shelters and will be professionally trained for Emotional Therapy, Psychiatric Service or  Companion depending on the needs of the Veteran.

   Our Goal is to enrich the life of the Veteran and give a second chance to a shelter dog in a supportive and respectful environment.

I am going to go look at 2 buildings today. Pray one of them will meet our needs. There are two dogs I could get from local shelters who would make excellent students for our program. They are waiting! I am waiting! The trainers are waiting ......
The veterans who need these dogs can't wait.

We are still looking for donations to help keep Hampton Roads Hounds for Heroes alive and well to donate trained shelter dogs to our Veterans with PTSD. Every little bit helps, if you can donate just a dollar that helps. Here is a picture of our first dog Malec. He is a wonderful dog who is learning fast and is going to be a great dog for his veteran. Help us help a veteran and Malec. He is waiting for "His Person"
