Wolfhounds Legacy's goal is to not only save one life but two. We help to join a military veteran with a unique service dog. By finding dogs from high-risk shelters and pairing them up with U.S. veterans based on their specific needs we are helping the lives of both veteran and dog.
We start by rescuing dogs from shelters and placing them into foster homes. All of the rescue dogs we bring into our care start out in a foster family environment or are already trained before they are placed. They are introduced to children, pets and other outdoor environments that make up the everyday normal activities of our veterans and each dog learns how to live in a family home life before being paired with their own veteran.
After the dogs are completely vetted they are enrolled in an 8-month training process where the veteran and the dog bond and the dog learns the skills that are necessary to be a service dog. Each veteran needs a service dog for their own personal reason. The dogs are then trained to fit the role or job for the veteran. We provide all the training for the veteran and his new battle buddy to receive the service dog certification.
We achieve this through donations and grants. Every donation helps to fund the journey that the dog and veteran will go through together.
