Raise A Service Puppy!

Raising a service puppy is a wonderful way to give back to the veterans that loyally served our country. It takes a lot of dedication and patience, as well as 2 classes a week with your little pup. Puppy raisers foster from 10 week to 6 months (or more) all raisers are required to have a background and home check prior to puppy placement. If you have the time, dedication to train, love, and heart to change a Veteran's life forever please. . .
