Free Service dogs to Veterans and Children

Hello I am the Director of a non-profit corporation in Texas with Bulldog and Friends Rescue Center. We rescue dogs that are in severe need of a second chance and train them to be a service dog for veterans and children. As many people already know more than 22 veterans per day last year took their own life. This has been reported to more closely to the veterans not having family or "nothing to live for." It has shown in a positive way that those on the road to recovery have recovered faster with a service dog. This program is call Save a Dog, Save a Veteran. Our second program is called Save a Dog, Save a Child. This program is for children that have mental, neurological, and physical disabilities. The dogs that are rescued through our center go through extensive training so a child is able to work them as a service dog. There are 2 different service dogs for children the first is mobility. This will allow a child in a wheelchair to become a little more "independent", this will also teach the child responsibility. The second type of service dog for them is a Medical Alert Dog. These dogs will be able to detect when seizures are going to happen and the proper way to help the handler. There are so many classifications of medical alert dogs, and can simply be used to take someone out of situation and calm them down. When petting or looking in to the eyes of a dog the body naturally releases oxytocin. Oxytocin is already released in the body all day long, this chemical helps the body and individual come to a calm state of mind.

I really like your programs! They are very thoughtful to others, and I'm glad we have people like you to help make a difference! I hope your program helps a lot of people (I'm sure it already has)! Thank you for doing this!
