WSP Dog Program Highlights

  • Warriors are accompanied by a trainer into the local animal shelter to train temperament-tested adoptable dogs within the shelter environment. This gives the warrior some "dog therapy" while helping the dog become even more adoptable. A certificate is placed on the dog's kennel, indicating the dog was "Trained by a Veteran" or "Trained by a First Responder".
  • Training may lead to a possible transition from shelter to home, with adoption assistance provided for warriors capable of caring for their own companion animal.
  • Opportunities are provided for therapeutic interaction with other animals in collaboration with partner nonprofits who provide these services.  This includes yoga in the presence of therapy horses.
