Mutts with a Mission
"SERVING THOSE WHO KEEP US FREE"
April 5th, we completed our first Transition Camp! 10 Veterans and Wounded Warriors from across the US and VA came to learn to work with their new Service Dog partners. Congratulations to our newest graduates!!
"Serving those who keep us free!"
Mutts with a Mission is a non-profit organization that trains veterans and Wounded Warriors and their dogs as Service Dog teams in order to return the independence our great Veterans sacrificed while serving our country. We also provide selected dogs from shelters, rescues, and breeders as trained service/assistance dogs to qualified veterans and wounded warriors.
We work hard to make sure that we are able to help every qualified veteran and Wounded Warrior receive the help they need through a Service Dog. But, unfortunately we can't do it without your support of time or money. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and exist solely on public contributions. We receive no government funding, nor do we charge the Veterans we serve and we never will!
In 2004, Mutts with a Mission founder SSG Brooke Corson was called to active duty and sent to Ft. Benning, GA as a Supply Sergeant for Bravo Company 1/50 Infantry Training Battalion. While there in 2006 she acquired Angus, a Cairn Terrier puppy, who went everywhere allowable with her. Angus could be seen on ruck marches, the Malone Ranges, the Weapons Pool, all over Post. Thankfully, SSG Corson had an understanding 1SG and Angus soon won the hearts of many soldiers all over Ft. Benning.
SSG Corson started realizing the valuable impact dogs have when the Drill Sergeants started visiting Angus at all times of the day just to have him sit in their laps. No matter how their day went a visit with Angus made it better. Unfortunately, shortly after SSG Corson returned home Angus was killed in a tragic accident. However, his legacy remains with every team we graduate.
We need your help to make sure we can provide our Veterans with everything they deserve at no cost to them!
Mutts With A Mission is growing rapidly, we are now accepting more Wounded Warriors and disabled Veterans in the program. How could we say "No"..? Our Veterans don't know the meaning, and neither do we.
Just like our Veterans are calling on Mutts With A Mission, we are calling on you to keep this mission alive.
As a non-profit organization, we exist solely on donations of our supporters. The more supplies and skills we receive by donation, the more of our funds can go directly to helping our Veterans and Wounded Warriors. Even the smallest donations such as chew toys and office supplies are greatly appreciated and put to use immediately.
