Shelter to Soldier™ is a CA 501c3 nonprofit organization that adopts dogs from local shelters and trains them to become psychiatric service dogs for post-9/11 combat veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and/or other psychological injuries associated with traumatic service experiences.
On average, 20 Veterans and 1 Active Duty military personnel commit suicide, every day. They sacrificed everything to protect our freedom. Shelter to Soldier™ rescues dogs that are better suited for a life with a job or may otherwise be overlooked, providing them a future with a purpose and a life that is fulfilled by their bond with a veteran in need.
The Shelter to Soldier™ team’s expertise in training service dogs is unmatched in the field and provides a great platform for them to use these talents to serve military personnel in honor of their service to our country. The sponsored service dog will serve the critical role of psychological support to his/her veteran handler.
A portion of all proceeds from the Perka, Work, and iCOOL collections are donated to Shelter to Soldier™.
