Mutts With A Mission was asked to appear on a local news station's morning show, Coast Live on WTKR. In this video our founder, Brooke Corson, tells the beginnings of Mutts With A Mission and what we are doing for Veterans today.


what we do

Our Mission

"Serving those who keep us free!" 


To provide selected, specially trained service/assistance dogs to qualified veterans, wounded warriors, law enforcement officers, federal agents, and first responders; to allow qualified candidates the opportunity to owner-train qualified dogs as service dogs.



We work hard to make sure that we are able to help every qualified Veteran,Wounded Warrior, Law Enforcement Officer, First Responder, and Federal Agent 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 heroes we serve and we never will!

we need puppy raisers!

Each puppy raiser means another puppy in training for a hero in need.

About US

Our Story

 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.

Do you have what we need?

We need your help to make sure we can provide our applicants 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 and now Law Enforcement Officers, First Responders, and Federal Agents in the program. How could we say "No"..? Our applicants don't know the meaning, and neither do we. 

Just like our brave defenders of freedom 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 us train highly skilled Service Dogs for these brave men and women. Even the smallest donations such as chew toys and office supplies are greatly appreciated and put to use immediately.
