"Dogs to Vets" hosted by American Legion

Our local American Legion is pleased to Clearpath for Veterans as they discuss their program Dogs2Vets Tuesday, May 16th at 7pm in the Community Room.

Dogs2Vets program is founded on a simple belief- “Dogs help people. The primary goal of our Dogs2Vets program is to provide emotional support to Veterans with Post Traumatic Stress or Military Sexual Trauma by establishing a reliable relationship between Veterans and their canine companion. All Veterans accepted through our general application process begin our program with basic dog training with their own carefully assigned dog or pre owned dog if appropriate. Dogs are selected from shelters and matched with Veterans based on specific needs and interests. Whether the ultimate goal is to achieve service dog status or simply to have a well-trained companion, all program participants find support and encouragement from our knowledgeable Dogs2Vets staff and Clear Path team.”
